Tonight’s show is called, “Bite the Hand that Feeds (The National Suicide Hotline).

While it may not be a cheery holiday topic, the fact remains that major holidays such as the Hanukah / Yule / Christmas / New Year’s season tend to exacerbate depression and loneliness for many people, and it is also a season where some can become despondent, grieve heavily, and even consider suicide.

Suicide was our very first topic on this show, and one of the top 3 that we continue to address, from various angles. In recent news, it was announced that a new, simplified national suicide crisis hotline number is being established, which opened up a lot of dialogue about the efficacy of the hotline model, and also why it sometimes may not serve as many of its intended clients as possible.

Tonight, we will discuss:

  • The New National Suicide Hotline
  • Suicide Hotlines Overview
  • Trust Issues with Suicide Hotlines
  • Resources and suggestions for coping


We'll start off the evening with some topic-relevant Classic Rock played by Dr. Mathis, followed by Classic Rock trivia in "The Rock & Roll Shrink Recalls," followed by our topic discussion.

Please follow our bi-weekly, Wednesday evening shows, at 11 pm EST/EDT. We will have a new topic for you in two weeks!
