Preventing And Coping With Death By Suicide

It's National Suicide Prevention Week -- a time to reflect on and raise awareness about an issue that touches thousands of Americans each year.

This hour, we sit down with doctors and relatives of those who’ve died by suicide. We talk about efforts to curb the suicide rate and about services available to those in grief. 

Have you lost a friend or loved one to suicide? Where did you turn for support? 


Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.
