Episode 24 “The Mind Gets Sick”

With more reports coming out showing suicide on the rise, these next two episodes will be dedicated to this topic, in particular relating to how we get kids to 1) talk about how they feel before it gets to suicide or suicidal thoughts and 2) how to talk to young people directly about suicide. On part 1 today we begin with the concept that just like the body, the mind too get sick, and sometimes so sick that a doctor or treatment is needed. Treating diseases of the mind similarly to that of the body will provide context to such a drastic event like suicide. Humans that grow up understanding how and when to get help for when their mind gets sick will be much less likely to approach or attempt suicide. Join in for part 1 of the discussion on Episode 24!
