TMS_S2E26 | Was Anthony Bourdain’s Suicide a Selfish Act?

The Mindfullness Show is written and produced by Josiah Samuel Harry. Music by Josiah Harry, Jr.

S2E26 Show Notes:
In this episode, Josiah discusses why conversations that attempt to justify, explain, or link depression to suicide are harmful and minimize the concerns of genuine depression sufferers and those with other mental health problems.
