On Saturday, Oct. 19, 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; however, there is hope for a decline in that number if we understand the scope of the problem and how to find help. What should you do if someone you know is at risk and why do teenagers need special help 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.
