I’m Shell Pavlis, Host of Hope Out of the Darkness. I have been affected by suicide. Chances are you have too. In order to talk about suicide and mental health, I’ve created a safe, comfortable place for us to listen to stories from those who have been touched by suicide.
Hope Out of the Darkness was born out of the volunteer work I do as a Board Member with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, here in Orange County, CA. I am definitely not a therapist or mental health professional, and a lot of times I struggle with the right thing to say or do. It is a very emotional topic. So join me on my journey to try and figure out the right way to help stop suicide and save lives.
