Suicide prevention and the ten-minute window

September 22, 2022

September is Suicide Awareness Month. As part of that WISH-TV will air a Health Spotlight Special Thursday, September 22nd focusing on suicide awareness, prevention and how it affects minority communities. I had the chance to sit down with WISH-TV medical expert and former Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams. We spoke about the difference between mental illness and mental wellness, reasons minorities are more susceptible to suicide and why doctors say implementing the "Ten-Minute Window" rule can save lives.
