Suicide is the ultimate tragedy. The lack of mental health awareness and treatment access in this country plays a contributing role. It is seen as something that is out of our control, a decision people make, or as a surprise. We often see words like “unexpected” in obituaries. However, research has shown us that the solutions to this collective problem are well understood. And we must implement these solutions to prevent suicide.
“There is so much that we can do now based on the science, to know when the right time is to intervene, and also to use a public health approach, where even before we get to the point of intervention, all children, all people in the population are exposed to the same levels of education[al] messages, [and a] safe and supportive culture.” -Christine Moutier, M.D.
This week we are joined by Christine Moutier, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to talk about suicide among veterans and young people, and biological factors that put people at higher risk for suicide. We also explore the solutions to preventing suicide, including how we can be better at implementing them. Everyone has a role to play to stop suicide.
