Apparently, my brother has asked my mom to go see a mental health professional and she might go to prove to us all she doesn't need help.

So there's that.

In another digital community i'm in, there's discussion about the formation of Death Cafes:

Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'.

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.


I'm not sure i feel a taboo around talking about death. I certainly feel a taboo around talking about suicide in the sense that i suspect a listener will be more on alert for "cries for help" than actually listening. It's the choice of continued existence or not, though, that has driven my awareness of death.
