Breaking The Silence: Compass Radio

It is not unusual for a person who has suffered from mental illness to have at least considered suicide.  Several of the members of Southern Oregon Compass House who have told their stories on our Compass Radio segment described suicidal feelings. 

Media outlets around Oregon join forces April 7 to 14 in a campaign called "Breaking the Silence," to speak out loud about suicide and contributing factors.  So this month's edition of Compass Radio visits with a member who can help us understand suicidal thinking.  Executive Director Elizabeth Hazlewood visits to talk about how the rest of us should respond when someone talks suicide.
