From Darkness to Light: Shama Persson's Journey of Overcoming Suicide Attempts

I think that behind every suicidal person there is a childhood trauma.
In this episode of 'From Darkness to Light', Shama Persson candidly shares her journey of overcoming addiction, mental health struggles, and suicide attempts. From her early childhood traumas to her struggles with alcoholism, Shama reflects on how her past experiences have shaped her mental health. She highlights the importance of seeking professional help and getting the right diagnosis, and how support systems played a crucial role in her recovery.
Shama also discusses the impact of childhood trauma on suicidal tendencies and how to step out of the darkness and towards the light. Her journey is a testament to the power of resilience and the importance of reaching out for help. As she says, 'For all of you who lost someone to suicide, I want you to relax.
There is a different life waiting for you, just as a different life was waiting for me, and I'm living it right now, and I intend to live it for as long as I can, one day at a time.'
