I thought Casper members may be interested to read the back cover blurb of my recently published book "Dry Your Tears," to see if this resonates with you at all.
If it does, you might like to read chapter one on my website www.goldenagementor.co.nz
I would love to hear feedback from you!
My warmest regards to you,
"Suddenly losing a seventeen-year old son in a car crash could easily send a parent into despair. But for Annette Hanham the experience of devastating loss eventually led to self-discovery of a profound and transformational kind.
A brilliant Ted talk which shows that vulnerability is not something to fear but embrace. The importance of authenticity and courage to get through.http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html
CASPER has secured financial and legal services from two of New Zealand's top companies. Our grateful thanks to law firm Buddle Findlay and accountants PriceWaterhouseCoopers for their support of suicide prevention.
The CASPER management team has been working on a model that explains suicide and the environmental/social and cultural conditions we need to create to prevent suicide. We would very much appreciate your feedback and suggestions on it which can be submitted at email@example.com
Many of you will be aware of the debate currently raging over the inclusion of grief as a mental disorder in the new diagnostic manual for psychiatry.

Today CASPER announced the establishment of a very important relationship with Mike Pero and his mortgage and real estate companies.
Any charity would be thrilled to announce a sponsorship deal worth $1million in cash, marketing, PR, fundraising and other business services. Any charity established a little over a year ago would of course be proud of its association with a brand which is as respected, known and trusted as the Mike Pero brand. I want to tell you though, why this relationship is so special and such a great fit for CASPER.
To all those who are in the darkest of places...... I hope that music reaches a part of your soul and helps you to move to a brighter place:) Kia Kaha
PINK - PERFECT
Made a wrong turn
Once or twice
Dug my way out

Welcome to my silly life
Mistreated, misplaced, missunderstood
Miss “no way it’s all good”
It didn’t slow me down
Always second guessing
Look, I’m still around…
Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
Pretty, pretty please
