Suicide: A heartbreaking, complex problem that we should talk about openly
On this episode of The Loudmouth Project’s Voices of Reason, Jasen Lee and Amy Donaldson discuss the complexities of suicide with Phillip Osteen, associate professor of Social Work and director of the Social Research Institute at the University of Utah. What are the signs that someone is in distress? What should you do if someone comes to you with thoughts of suicide? And why does it matter that we talk about a painful subject even more?
