In this special series for National Suicide Prevention Month, Dr. Kristin Tugman breaks down seven common myths about suicide. She gives us ways in which we can have better conversations about mental health in order to prevent future suicides. Kristin is passionate about mental health and has just started a non-profit called Community Action for Mental Health. If you or someone you love is struggling with mental health and experiencing suicidal ideation, always feel comfortable in calling the suicide hotline at 988 or reaching out to your surrounding support system. “It's hard for someone's brain to really allow themselves to decide that yes, this person, is at risk for dying by suicide, which again is why it's so important to have the open lines of communication and feel like it's something that we can easily talk about just as we would ask about our physical health.” - Dr. Kristin Tugman
