Suicide is an issue which knows no boundaries; it is not a solution but a grenade, a weapon of mass destruction. KATV hosted a town hall on suicide prevention on September 27th, and Dr. Elizabeth was honored to serve on the panel to discuss this difficult but important topic.
Arkansas ranks 17th in the United States for suicide. Watch the town hall presentation by clicking the following link:
If you need help or know of someone who does, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK) 24 hours a day or visit their website at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org.
If you are an active member of the military, contact mental health on the base and ask for the MFLC number (Military Family Life Counselors). This is an excellent service which is provided by the military and is confidential. If you are a veteran, contact the VA for assistance.
