Therapist Marc Lehman, expert perspective on 13 Reasons Why:
By Shane G. Owens, Ph.D., ABPP On July 12, 2014, 17-year-old Michelle Carter repeatedly encouraged her 18-year-old boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to kill himself. He was in his truck in a K-Mart parking lot, pumping the cab full of carbon monoxide gas.
By Shane G. Owens, Ph.D., ABPP The first thing I remember reading on the news crawl on May 18 th was that Chris Cornell died in Detroit. I had to watch the whole cycle again because I couldn’t believe it. In addition to his family, friends, and his music, Chris Cornell left us with some important reminders about suicide prevention.
By Shane G. Owens, Ph.D., ABPP A kid’s death by suicide is very rare. While none of us wants to dwell on the possibility of a kid’s death, suicide is preventable if you know what puts a kid at risk and how to tell if there’s an imminent risk of suicide.
