EP. 61 - The Next Breath Ft. Jody Barrilleaux and Ted Thibodeaux of HALOS

==========

So many lives in Calcasieu Parish have been touched by suicide, and when we look at the rising statistics we don’t really find many answers as to why. Those left behind are left to wonder what went wrong, or what they could have done to make a difference. Suicide leaves so many unanswered questions and feelings that run the entire emotional spectrum, leaving survivors looking for hope and healing. The particular type of grief that suicide places on the friends and loved ones left behind is so particular and so heavy. Often, those who remain live from breath-to-breath. This is where HALOS—which stands for Healing After A Loved One’s Suicide—is exactly the saving grace that many are seeking. Core members of HALOS, Jody Barrilleaux and Ted Thibodeaux, were gracious enough to come and visit me on Find the Good News, allowing this little podcast to be a small extension of their shining light. Having both lost dear and close family members to suicide, Ted and Jody know first hand the fear, sorrow, anger, grief, and confusion that family and friends are left with when a loved one dies by suicide. Through HALOS, Ted, Jody, and others have created a loving, safe, and exposed heart-space that allows those grieving to share their pains, tell their stories and say the names of their loved ones out loud. With time and exposure to others in the HALOS groups healing after suicide can begin, and though a loved one may have been lost, the survivors never have to be alone. Death by suicide can make those that remain feel as though their light was taken away, but through the work of Jody, Ted, and others in the HALOS groups sharing their love and experiential understanding, many have found their way back to brighter days.
