In December, the CDC released data showing suicide is the tenth leading cause of death, and rising. Creating a culture open to talking about mental health and suicide prevention is critical.
How can you recognize if someone is in emotional distress, even if they aren’t talking about suicide? How do you meet people where they’re at and acknowledge their pain without trying to fix it?
