It’s been a tough year for most of us in a lot of different ways and that surely includes issues related to mental health, suicide, and even depression, sadly.
Continuing our recent focus on mental health and suicide as we approach the holidays (you might want to check our recent interview with Cal Beyer on Suicide in High-Risk Industries), we caught up with Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas to discuss the National Guidelines for Workplace Suicide Prevention.
We’d like to thank Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas, her frequent collaborator Cal Beyer, and all the hard-working, caring people out there not only shining a light on this issue to make us more aware of it but also giving us actionable tips of how to help.
Happy holidays, everyone. Hang in there and, if you need some help, reach out. We love ya.
