S3E24 / Gun Violence in America / Why do people die by suicide? IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH with Dr. Celine Gounder

    • Science

People die by suicide when they think they’re a burden on others, when they’re socially isolated, and when they have the ability to injure themselves lethally. Dying by suicide is really hard to do. It's not an impulsive act. You need to have the knowledge and means to act on your feelings – with lethality. Guests: Thomas Joiner, Professor of Psychology at Florida State University and author of "Why Do People Die by Suicide?", and Michael Anestis, Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi and author of "Guns and Suicide: An American Epidemic." | insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com | glow.fm/insicknessandinhealth
