The Silent Struggle
In Forum we talk about the 5%, going deep in business, family and personal life. Sometimes we are fortunate enough to really hit the 1% of life that we “need to share” or “need to hear”. On November 9th, 2019 EO Seattle we will be hosting an event dealing with anxiety, depression and suicide. Sharing and hearing these stories can be very difficult and should not be taken lightly. Many people suffer in silence, shame and confusion.
Speakers for this event include:
• An expert on suicide, depression and the neuroscience of the brain.
• An expert on societal pressures such as bullying, body image, social media, etc.
• Sue Klebold. She is the mother of Dylan Klebold, one of the Columbine shooters. Sue lives each day with the indescribable grief and shame of that day. How could her child, the promising young man she had loved and raised, be responsible for such horror? How did she not know something was wrong? Were there subtle signs she had missed? What, if anything, could she have done differently? Her presence at this learning event is a part of her ongoing efforts to help people to better understand depression and suicide.
