There are an estimated one million suicides worldwide each year; however, there is hope for a decline in that number if we understand the scope of the problem and how to find help. Saturday, Oct. 19, Timothy Lineberry, M.D., and J. Michael Bostwick, M.D., will join us to talk about suicide prevention. We’ll discuss what to do if someone you know is at risk and why teenagers need special help if they are suicidal. We'll also talk about resources for loved ones who are left behind after suicide and discuss the drastic increase in the number of military members who are dying from suicide. Please join us.
This week's Myth or Matter of Fact: Most suicide attempts fail.
