Good episode? Give it some love!
Each year about a million people in the United States attempt to take
their own lives. Another ten million people seriously consider suicide.
Those rates have been rising in the coronavirus pandemic. These statistics
became very real for us at PEACE TALKS RADIO recently when a talented
young producer named Hannah Colton, who did several episodes for us, took
her own life in November of 2020. On this episode we talk with
psychologist Dr. Ursula Whiteside about her efforts to stop suicide. We
also talk about the difficulty journalists face as frontline responders
with Bruce Shapiro, executive director of the Dart Center for Journalism
and Trauma. We also sample some of Hannah Colton's work for PEACE TALKS
RADIO. Megan Kamerick hosts the interviews.
