Ep #103 Vaughan Gilmore, Chief Clinical Officer of Santa Maria Hostel
Our Special Guest is mental health expert Vaughan Gilmore, We shine a spotlight on suicide as a public health issue and work to ensure that people have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention & seek treatment when needed.
After suffering the tremendous loss of a vibrant, beautiful individual in our community, many of us have been searching for answers with a mixture of emotion from shock, confusion, to despair. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. for adults, but suicide’s impacts aren’t measured in deaths alone. People who lose loved ones to suicide face their own mental health impacts, including trauma, grief, or even shame.
Suicide is a public health problem with major impacts, We dive in with Vaughan to discuss the difference between warning signs & risk factors and the resources to navigate through the uncertainty & begin the healing process.
