In light of the tragic death by suicide of worldwide comedic idol, Robin Williams, many of us have turned our attention to depression, mental illness, and how a growing number of people are suffering from both, with most of them going untreated. Suicide is far more common than we think.
Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the U.S.(more common than homicide).
Suicide is the third leading cause of death for ages 15 to 24 years.
22 U.S. soldiers a day take their own lives.
More than 90 percent of those who die by suicide had one or more mental disorders.
Let's learn how to recognize, understand, and prevent another suicide, particularly, if we are seeing symptoms of depression in ourselves or someone we care about. What is depression anyway?
Rolonda talks with Mental Health Activists Terrie WIlliams (Black Pain) and Psychiatrist Dr. Mary Bridges.
Also, Jake Clark, who founded “Save a Warrior” to help war-traumatized soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorders.
And, Author of NATURE'S PROZAC, Judith Sachs, offers some natural remedies to help combat depression.
Plus, testimony from those suffering from depression tell the raw truth about the illness and how they and their families are dealing with the issue at home.
