Episode 109 An Inside Look at Suicide: Interview Megan Borquin
Welcome to the Love Your Story Podcast. Today we get real with Megan Bourquin, a 21-year-old woman who attempted suicide, and her open, authentic discussion about why, mindset, her life experiences and some thoughts on how we can help stem the tide of suicide in America.
Megan was born and raised in Michigan. Her upbringing was far from typical. She grew up with a father in prison and a family with enough trauma to last a lifetime. She battled with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. When she was 16 she started self-harming, self-medicating, and actively trying to take her own life. After a few failed suicide attempts she landed in extensive and long-term treatment facilities that ultimately saved her life.
