'Facing Suicide' documentary aims to offer hope to people in need
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people in Iowa, and it’s clear that many people who struggle with their mental health do not and can not get the care they need. Facing Suicide, a new documentary from Iowa PBS aims to raise awareness about what health experts are calling an epidemic.
On this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe speaks with the people who are broadening the conversation, fighting mental health stigma and saving lives.
