This Friday, April 10th, we had a chance to interview someone at the forefront of the fight against suicide in Ohio: Michelle Price. Michelle is the Director of Community Engagement at the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation. In this interview we talk about her role at OSPF, her personal experience with depression and suicidal ideation, effects of COVID-19 on mental health and how to stay socially connected, responsible messaging and language, suicide trends in Ohio, and so much more.
Be sure to stick around for the "Fast Five" at the end!
