Description

Hi friends!

On today's episode you are going to meet Margie who talks with us so vulnerably about the death of her son, John.

Margaret Thompson began her career in New York City at MTV. She married and left to raise her two boys, Tim and John, ultimately finding the calling of her life, teaching. Since the loss of her son, John, to suicide, she has dedicated herself to educating others about the importance of focusing on mental health as a medical, and potentially fatal, condition.

In 2019 she published the book Finding Color In The Darkness: Losing My Son to Bipolar Disorder. Finding Color in the Darkness is a memoir dedicated to her son, John Fish. It is also the story of her search to find hope and purpose in the aftermath of John’s death by suicide.

Her goal is twofold: to help those who suffer with severe depression and thoughts of suicide by validating their pain as a medical condition and, to offer guidance to both those who have lost a loved one to suicide, or to parents of those who may be a suicide risk.
