Despite the fact that over 100 people commit suicide in the US alone on a daily basis, we don’t often hear enough about resources for those who are having suicidal thoughts until a high profile celebrity tragically turns to suicide. In this episode, Tony addresses some of the myths around talking about suicide and then gives suggestions and tools for those who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts or ideations or for anyone who may be dealing with a loved one who is experiencing suicidal thoughts.
