The Mile Wide Project 2/6/16

February 4, 2016

(TW: suicide) "My name is Joel Glenn Wixson. I'm a musician, a psychologist, a father, a husband, a friend, and a suicide survivor."

When Joel was 25, he experienced the lethal invitations of suicide. He survived because the distance between his plans to kill himself and his ability to act on those plans was wide enough for him to reconsider. This is the inspiration for the Mile Wide Project.  The mission is to create space between impulse and action. The belief is that impulses are rooted in ideas that we hold dear. There are ways to stand up for those ideas. By creating space through music and conversation we find ways to stand up for what we hold dear, and live a life that is a testament to our pain, not a tragic headline.

The Mile Wide Project is a one man show.

It takes you from pain and isolation to hope and possibilities.

See where it takes you.
