Suicide has been more and more in the news in the past month and we’re lucky enough to have an incredible non-profit organization who is doing something about it. This episode, we are joined by Foundation 45. It was created in honor of two of the the three founding members of the incredible band Spectre 45 who committed suicide.
We’re joined by Lauren O’Connor, Peter Thomas PH.D, and Jen Sturges. They share their experiences with suicide, misconceptions, warning signs, and how Foundation 45 is making a difference.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder , or PTSD as it’s more commonly known, has become a household term. You’ve probably heard about it or even know someone who has experienced it, but few of us really know the impact it has on the human body or psyche.
I have a strong opinion about the need for psychological health services, and for military personnel I feel it is vital. Very few of us know the extent at which these men and women go through during their service and more importantly the lives to which they return. I want to be clear, as it is in the episode, this is not a political issue. The care of one human over another is absurd. This is as a specific population, as any other, who needs specialized care.
