I’m not sure I’ll ever fully understand the cause of my mother’s suicide. But I do know that she had a long history of depression, and that her mental state deteriorated after her father died.
Laura Trujillo details the struggle of recovery after family members killed themselves in “Stepping Back From the Ledge.”
The author has been a mother of three for five years and also suffers from depression. She is opening up about her mental illness and the struggles that come with it daily. She is also encouraging other women to open up and share their own stories of motherhood, depression, maternal mental illness and suicidal ideation.
