Many conversations about suicide only focus on prevention and looking for the warning signs. But what if a suicide has already happened? How do we talk about it publicly and privately in healthy, supportive ways? During this week’s show we’ll discuss the media coverage of recent suicides, like the death at AFN, and how to have community conversations about such deaths.
