On this week’s episode, I said down with Kim Hall.

Kim talks to me about the death of her mother by suicide Kim’s mother suffered from postnatal depression and depression, her manic episodes resulted in her being hospitalized throughout Kim’s young life.

Kim’s mother was abandoned by the mental health services releasing Kim’s mother into the hands of her 15-year-old daughter.

Kim experienced many of her mother’s suicide attempts and in the end, Kim‘s mother succeeded in her attempts leaving a 16-year-old Kim and her sisters behind.

Throughout the conversation, Kim’s love for her mother is palpable Kims outlook on life today is one of gratitude, determination, and positivity. She is an absolute credit to herself, she has worked so hard to be the woman she is today.

Kim has launched an initiative to help others in her community which are walk and talk sessions she set this up in honor of her mother to offer people a safe place to talk.
