Forefront -- innovations in suicide prevention
It’s been more than 13 years since Kristen Spexarth’s son, Colby, took his own life at the age of 22. Tears still cloud her eyes when she talks about him—a gifted, loving, young man suffering intolerable physical pain—and the hole his loss ripped through her very being.
The hole is still there, but it has created a space for heightened awareness, compassion and forgiveness. Gifts she shares with others through her poetry and essays, public speaking, private listening and participation in Forefront Cares.
