Dr. Jonathan Singer

In this episode, Dr. Jonathan Singer describes his work drawing on the creative arts that by its nature is a community-based effort at preventing suicide. He argues that traditional prevention efforts, while effective at addressing the stigma associated with suicide on a person-at-a-time basis, do little to address the larger public stigma that is so prevalent and alienating for this population.
