Suicide Prevention: Understanding the Facts and How to Help

The challenge that we face in preventing suicide is that we don't hear about it and that we don't talk about it.
In this special encore presentation of One Hour AT A Time, licensed clinical social worker Ken Norton joins host Mary Woods to discuss suicide prevention. Norton highlights the best practices for promoting healing and reducing risk after a suicide death, including the importance of working with people who have lost someone to suicide and recognizing the increased risk that comes with knowing someone who has died by suicide. The episode also covers statistics about suicide, risk factors, and effective treatments for intervention. Norton and Woods also discuss the role that media plays in suicide prevention and ways to talk about suicide in a more positive way. Listeners will come away from this episode with a greater understanding of suicide prevention and how to help those who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts.
If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please reach out to a mental health professional or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Listen to the full episode now here on alcoholfree.com.
