Dr. Wichman could be found on FOX43 in September discussing suicide prevention month. While suicide prevention is often taboo and not talked about among family and friends, taking the right steps can help to save someones life. Studies show asking someone about suicide does not increase chances of suicide but can dramatically help to lower risk for that person.
If you don’t feel comfortable having the conversation you can ask others to join you. You can also find more resources at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you feel someone is in immediate danger call 911 immediately! Breakaway is here to help as well with deep TMS and psychiatry.
