Ep. 83 - Suicide rates dropped in 2020: how can that be? | John Sommers Flanagan and Stacey Freedenthal

Understand Suicide

Despite the sharp rise of mental health issues and many other risk factors during the onset of COVID-19, the number of suicides in the United States decreased in 2020. Not only that but the most significant drop (14%) happened in April of 2020 when most of the country was in lockdown. In an effort to understand this phenomenon, I invited two American leading suicide prevention experts: clinical psychologist John Sommers-Flanagan and the clinical social worker Stacey Freedenthal. Both of them are authors in the field of Suicidology and have been working with suicidal patients for decades. They are also professors: John teaches at the University of Montana and Stacey, at the University of Denver. What can possibly explain these puzzling numbers? Is this really surprising or does it follow a trend that had already started in 2019? What’s hidden behind the US statistics? These and many other questions are discussed in this episode. If you want to support my work, buy me a coffee.

Ep. 30 - What to say to a suicidal person / Interview Stacey Freedenthal

Understand Suicide

Knowing how to help a suicidal person is difficult for most of us. We are afraid to “do the wrong thing” and stimulate their resolve. In order to help with this issue, the clinical social worker Stacey Freedenthal wrote the book “Helping the suicidal person,” with eighty-nine tips on how to approach someone who is contemplating suicide. Stacey has personal experience with suicide ideation because she experienced it herself in her 20s; she also lost friends to voluntary death. Today, she works in Dever, Colorado, treating suicidal patients and grief related to this kind of loss. In this interview, I ask her to explain some of the suggestions explored in the book, not only regarding what to say but also what we should all avoid doing when listening to individuals at risk for suicide.
