Suicide Contagion and Prevention

IMG_1862.jpg

With the recent deaths of celebrities Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, mental health professionals are concerned there could be an increased risk of contagion suicide. On the flip side, bringing suicide into the national dialogue could encourage those contemplating suicide to seek help. On The Point, we talk with psychologist Michael Abruzzese and psychiatrist Marc Whaley about the science behind suicide contagion, as well as treatment and prevention strategies. Mindy Todd hosts.
