As September closes, The Martin Insider brings in mental health professionals Omar Marshall, Joshua Brainard, and Mike Scott to discuss suicide prevention.
It is a time to listen, offer help, eliminate stigmas around suicidal thoughts and seek support. They also share tips on recognizing the signs of suicide and how you can help someone who may be considering suicide.
The Martin Insider shines a light on the different forms of depression, the symptoms associated with depression, and statistics on those who commit suicide. As mental health professionals share resources, advice, and alternatives to committing suicide, we ask that you join in and listen to this important and imperative conversation that The Martin Insider brings.
