Discussing Depression and Suicide


 
 

There's something personal I'd like to share with you:  Several years ago, my sister killed herself.  It was the worst day of my life.  But hope can spring from tragedy. Dr. Reef Karim, a Los Angeles psychiatrist on the faculty of the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, interviewed me about suicide -- a theme that runs throughout my mystery/suspense novel "Fast Track," drawn, in part, from my sister's suicide. 

The interview is now available as a podcast sponsored by The Depression is Real Coalition, a group dedicated to helping people who suffer from depression.  Here's the link to our conversation: http://depressionisreal.org/podcast/archive_2008_01.phpIt's program #34.  I hope you'll give it a listen, and check out the coalition's web site: http://depressionisreal.org 
 

Feel free to pass this along to anyone else in your life who you feel might be encouraged by the interview.

Thanks!
