Suicide Prevention Expert Jerry Reed on What Everyone Can Do To Reduce Suicide Could Be Better, tbh (with Stacy London)

    • Mental Health

Let’s cut to the chase: Today’s episode is hard. Like, really hard. Because, we’re talking about suicide. According to The JED Foundation, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among young people. And it often seems like a big, overwhelming problem to solve.  In this episode, Stacy is talking to Dr. Jerry Reed, Senior Vice President at the Education Development Center and a recognized leader in the field of suicide prevention. He shares some of his critical research on suicide, the strides we’ve made in reducing suicide in the country, and what more needs to be done. Dr. Reed also talks to Stacy about the short window of intervention we have to help someone attempting to take their own life, and what we can say or do to give them another chance for tomorrow.  -- This podcast is brought to you by Crisis Text Line and The Jed Foundation (JED).  If you need support processing some of the show's difficult topics, please reach out for help by visiting www.crisistextline.org and www.jedfoundation.org.
