A Journey from the Brink of Suicide to Mental Wellness with Amanda Webster
I think it’s safe to say that many of us struggle with dark thoughts at one time or another but just how bad does have to get to take you to the point of suicide? On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we are talking with Amanda Webster about her battle with depression that put her on the ledge of a hotel room window and what brought her back.
Amanda is a fitness model and certified wellness coach who overcame depression on her own terms after years of being guinea-pigged on anti-depressants, losing her parents and succumbing to addiction and self-harm led her to a ledge in a Canadian hotel room where she almost took her life.
