What do we do when someone has attempted or died by suicide?

 In part two of our conversation about suicide, Chris and Karlie are joined by Lezlie Culver to talk about “postvention.” Through personal experience and her work with families who have lost a loved one to suicide, Lezlie discusses how we can support teenagers who have attempted suicide and families who are affected by suicide.

Don’t be a silo. You can’t handle it by yourself, especially with suicide.
