AUNE Alumnus Raising Awareness About Suicide Prevention

Antioch Univeristy New England alumnus Dr. Joel Glenn Wixson (MA, PsyD) is a clinical psychologist and singer-songwriter working to raise awareness about suicide prevention through his education, experience, and music.  Along with maintaining a private practice in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Wixson has also produced several CDs and performed at various venues around the region.  Among his latest undertakings is “The Mile Wide Project,” a performance-based suicide prevention project in which he combines his musical and therapeutic skills to deliver an innovative and improvisational show with a single message: There is always hope.

Wixson says the show is meant to remind people of all that is positive in their lives. “It all ends up with the process of gratitude and understanding and unfolding possibilities for everybody in their lives, to take them past the hard stuff but also to acknowledge the amazingness that we all carry.”

The first show took place September 30, 2015 at 3S ArtSpace in Portsmouth.  To read more visit:
