Overview

Find Gregory St. Amand: What happened to my son? by Beth St. Amand

Without warning--BANG!--a mother loses her son to suicide. Why?

This beautifully written, brave memoir explores the complicated and misunderstood subject of suicide through a mother's journey to find the answer to her question, "What happened to my son?"

Turning to research, psychiatry, and suicide prevention organizations, the author reviews her son's life with a newly educated perspective, confronting her own subconscious misunderstandings about suicide in the process.

"Find Gregory St. Amand" is honest, powerful, and empathetic, serving as a wake-up call, particularly for parents. The author encourages the reader to see suicide's broad picture, which lessens ignorance and discomfort, ultimately leading to awareness and conversations that can save lives. Suicide does not discriminate, the author reminds us; her son Greg could be any parent's son.
