April 2016

iR;se was founded by psychotherapist Kristie Knights. Although she had supported clients in her private practice who had suicidal thoughts, or attempts, and those who had lost a loved one from suicide, it had become an epidemic.


As she read a post on Facebook by a woman who had suffered a head injury, contemplated suicide, and made the choice to live; she realized at that moment the power of healing through sharing a story.
