Recast - Suicide Prevention (feat. Dr. Jonathan Singer & Dr. Sherry Molock)

CXMH - Main Episodes (32).jpg

Folks, it's been a tough week. The deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain by suicide filled the headlines, and the CDC released a new report that suicide rates have been rising across the Unites States. As a result, I wanted to rebroadcast this episode from last year on Suicide Prevention for new listeners or long-time listeners who might find it helpful again. I'll also rebroadcast a bonus episode I did on Suicide Prevention resources later this week, so keep an eye out for that. Here's some new notes, followed by the original show notes from this episode:

- The Jedi Counsel episode I mention in the intro and a list of resources they put together.

- "If somebody's thinking 'I don't know anybody that has struggled with depression or eating disorders or self-harming behavior,' you should probably get to know folks in your community better." (tweet)
- "If you don't think somebody in your community is suicidal, you're missing it. They're just not telling you." (tweet)

This week, we have two Doctors in the house! Dr. Jonathan Singer (host of The Social Work Podcast) and Dr. Sherry Molock join us to talk about suicide prevention in the context of churches, ministries, or other faith communities.
