Suicide…how to stop it

Share

Today on the Last Call, Warren Elly discusses Suicide. It kills a million people a year worldwide but there are things you and I can do to prevent it.

It’s a national tragedy that nearly 40-thousand Americans of all ages take their own lives every year, leaving over a quarter million survivors in need of comfort and support.
Experts say depression is the main symptom precluding a suicide and research shows it can be treated in most cases.

Sadly it’s the stigma of suicide that pushes people away from seeking treatment. Suicidal thoughts are non-discriminatory and can affect any demographic of any population at any time.

Warren welcomed Bay Area activist in the fight to prevent suicide; Betsey Westuba, the chairwomen of Florida’s Suicide Prevention Coalition.
