Welcome to the Community Conversations forum! Community Conversations began as a simple request by Rise Above Fest creator, Shaun Morgan, who is also the frontman of the platinum selling band, Seether. After losing his brother to suicide, Shaun wanted an easy way for people to get together online and talk openly about mental health, mental wellness and the daily struggles we all face.  

The purpose of this forum is to provide a supportive space for anyone to ask questions or find answers to a number of topics involving mental health, suicide attempt recovery, self-care practices, and many others. It’s also a place where people can talk freely and openly without worry of judgement and a place to support someone else who may need it.

We ask all participants to read and respect the Rules of Participation in order to provide a safe and supportive online community.
