May 5th Chat


E. david Klonsky is known for his work with NSSI. However, in the last five years, he has shifted his focus to motivation for suicide, a new theory of suicide and wrapped that around a public health approach. David will join us on the SPSM CHAT on Sunday night, May 5th at 9PM EDT.

The other voice at our table Sunday night is Norine Vander Hooven, the chair of AAS’s (American Association of Suicidology) new Youth Suicide Prevention Committee.

Both topics are important to any #impactedfamily & friend with loved ones who have experienced any form of suicidal crisis.
