Crystal Partney is an author, speaker, suicide grief coach, and founder of Scattering Hope and Owl & Thistle.
The day before her 32nd birthday in 2019, would be the day that changed her life forever. Little did Crystal know; she would receive the devastating news that her sister Gina had taken her life that morning. After this tragedy, Crystal needed the next steps on how to begin the healing process. She discovered that the first 30 days are often the most important step when it comes to healing after suicide.
Knowing how hard it can be to deal with the loss of a loved one, especially at a time when human interaction may be limited, or impossible, Crystal decided she would help others mourning the loss of a loved one to suicide, and to give a place of hope to those who may be in a place of darkness and need a helping hand.
Crystal was recently featured on in Medium, Thrive Global, Kivo Daily, and The American Reporter.
