Season 2 Finale! We started this season on a bridge but told you not to get caught up in the romantic notion of saviors and last minute interventions. Suicide isn’t about one moment in time. But if you or someone you love is suicidal, a single moment can be the difference between life and death. So, this week we’re doing a toolkit episode all about crisis response. What do you do when help is needed right now? This week, we role play with a suicide hotline employee, give the Cliff’s notes version of QPR suicide prevention training, and hear about what happens when therapists go on strike.
This episode features a host of talented people, including Tara Consolino (director of suicide prevention and substance abuse, Detroit V.A.), Dr. Julie Goldstein Grumet (director, Zero Suicide Institute at the Education Development Center), Dr. John Draper (executive director, National Suicide Prevention Lifeline), Susan Whitney (licensed marriage and family therapist, Kaiser), and Sal Rosselli (president and co-founder, National Union of Healthcare Workers).

You must be joking! You think people want to hear this rubbish?
The 2nd has been restricted so many times already. The GCA, the Brady laws, The Hughes ammendment and so on. The rights enshrined in it have been whittled down, restricted and people are done with being told what's acceptable to own by a bunch of rich douches who are protected by the very same guns the demand are banned. You wanna know why gun crime is exploding? Because liberal DA's and the federal prosecutors refuse to charge under the existing laws. Its supposed to be a 5 year mandatory minimum for illegal possession by a felon. Giving an armed felon who has prior charges a suspended or 1 year sentence means they will just keep committing gun crimes. I have no interest in hearing this Kimber shill, Fudd try and tell me a damn thing. The 2nd isn't about hunting. Stop pretending it is. Shall. Not. Be Infringed. And fuck you and every single Karen who continues to try and restrict constitutional protections.
listened to this episode, coincidentally, the day after Uvalde, Texas. The NRA feels like a domestic terrorist group. I really enjoyed the cogent logic of speaker Ryan. Why are these voices not heard? Why are none of our voices heard? Whose children have to die? How many is enough?
Made me think a lot. Nevertheless, the objective of a car is not the same as the objective of a gun...
My friend was caught cutting and broke down. Whenever I try to ask him about it, he says "because it's fun" when I feel like he's just deflecting it...
So, a friend is a suicide researcher / psychology trained...at the VA. so appreciate all the work these federal servants do, so much. I know how much they care.❤❤❤
I love this podcast. Your personal experience and reporting is highly relatable. Thank you so much.

I am not usually a commenter on podcasts or anything really. This episode MOVED me. I want Jenny to know how absolutely amazing her story is. The system absolutely failed her husband, and the entire family. Jenny demonstrated so much resilience over and over again. Not many people could be in her position and respond in the way she did. And since I'm here writing, Stephanie, I have listened to season 1 and am working on season 2. I appreciate your angle on these tough topics. I am a trauma survivor, special education public school teacher, and single mother with a partner in recovery. I admire you for taking your experience and turning into an opportunity for others.
Thanks for great episod 👍

My daughter suffered with severe depression as a teen. We sat through many long ER waits and evaluations. We were always turned away even though she admitted plans to commit suicide. I worked so hard to keep her alive. By God's grace she is 26 today. She still suffers with depression but she refused to try to get help now. I wish help was easier to find and not so stigmatized.

Whoa! Essential listening!!🌟 Regardless of whether you are affected by addiction or not, this episode is incredible. Hear for yourself......
Hearing Tali's psychological profile I recognised many traits of Asperger's Syndrome, as I was also diagnosed. I'm currently fighting a depression and this episode really resonated with me.
The way Stephanie reads ads makes me wanna kill myself.
