Candid Conversations: Talking About Suicide with the Ones You Love

Presented by Reverend Kay Towns, MTS, MAC, LPC, Brain Health Consultants and TMS Center There are many types of “talks” we have with our loved ones, but when is the last time your talk included a conversation on suicidality? With suicide on the rise, it’s time to give this topic a place in our family conversations. Learn recent statistics and vital information about suicidality, and learn how to engage in essential conversations about this growing mental health issue. Talking about suicide in the context of caring and prevention does not make someone suicidal, rather it allows a potentially suicidal person to know they are not alone and that help is available.
