69th Street Suicide | Sharon Greenwald

Our guest today is Sharon Greenwald. Sharon is an advocate for mental health and has written a book, “Sixty-ninth Street Suicide.” written from the angle of explaining her "why" through the thoughts and feelings she endured for many years. Her purpose is to
help erase the stigma of mental illness.

To purchase Sharons book:

After suffering depression following a catastrophic event at 17, Sharon Greenwald knows she’ll commit suicide one day. But she never considers what would happen if she survived. When depression returns after divorce, a seemingly inconsequential event sets her plan in motion. She awakens from a five-day coma to questions of why. “Sixty-ninth Street Suicide” is a candid, raw story that explores Sharon’s every destructive thought and feeling that adds up to her why. The answer may surprise you.
