In the words of veteran Voice of Vashon host Susan McCabe: “Pandemic pressures have weighed heavily on Vashonians, and we hope this broadcast will start giving our community some healing tools to help each other deal with the pandemic’s devastating impacts.” The Tales from the Edge event launches a VashonBePrepared suicide prevention campaign of public awareness and education, produced by the Community Care Team unit of the Vashon Medical Reserve Corps. Islanders face a grave threat as the pandemic drags on and we are seeing a surge in substance abuse, domestic abuse, loneliness, and depression. All these challenges can build up to deadly consequences. Susan McCabe explores these issues with two suicide survivors and a long time island clinician. You will learn to recognize the warning signs of suicide, what to say to a person in need, and how to take action to help them.
