Remembering Garrett: One Family's Battle with a Child's Depression Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Oregon Senator Gordon Smith's son, Garrett, battled clinical depression for most of his life, and at the age twenty-two while attending the University of Utah, he took his own life. As parents, the suicide was absolutely heart-breaking for Smith and his wife, who had adopted Garrett as a newborn, and as a senator, Smith was forced to question whether he had the strength or even the desire to carry on in politics.

Smith candidly retraces his son's life leading up to his suicide and chronicles the crippling sadness he and his wife faced in the aftermath. With the help of faith and others around him, Smith not only returned to politics, but has become a tireless advocate of suicide prevention. Smith's memoir speaks from the heart as a parent to other parents who have experienced the same tragedy.

Synopsis:

United States Senator Gordon H. Smith tells the heartbreaking but inspiring story of his son's embattled life, his death by suicide at age twenty-two, and how the Smiths finally carried on — fighting the growing problem of youth suicide with the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act.

Synopsis:

Oregon senator and author Smith candidly retraces his son's life leading up to his suicide and chronicles the crippling sadness he and his wife faced in the aftermath.

About the Author

Gordon Smith is currently serving his second term in the United States Senate, where he has represented his home state of Oregon since 1997. During his service in the Capitol, he has earned a reputation for independence, effectiveness, and an ability to bridge partisan differences. A graduate of Brigham Young University and Southwestern University School of Law,  Smith entered politics after a successful career in the food processing industry. The death of their son, Garrett, propelled Smith and his wife Sharon to embark on a mission to improve mental health programs and to combat the epidemic of youth suicide.
