Suicide Prevention (rebroadcast)
The next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Saturday, April 5, 9 a.m. CDT, is a rebroadcast from October 2013.
Timothy Lineberry, M.D., and J. Michael Bostwick, M.D., joined us to discuss suicide prevention. There are an estimated one million suicides worldwide each year but there is hope that number can drop if we understand the scope of the problem and how to find help. What should you do if someone you know is at risk? How can you help teenagers if they are suicidal? We also talked about resources for loved ones who are left behind after suicide and discussed the drastic increase in the number of military members who are dying from suicide. Please tune in.
Myth or Matter of Fact: Most suicide attempts fail.
