Session 26: Five Myths About Suicide

The Therapy for Black GirlsTM Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

In honor of September being National Suicide Prevention Month, I discussed the warning signs and risk factors that may help you assess whether a friend is suicidal and also addressed the top 5 myths I hear about suicide.
