One of the most dangerous misconceptions about suicide is that asking a loved one if they are suicidal will increase the odds that they will attempt suicide.  Today Dr. Nate Ivers of Wake Forest University discusses the importance of making “the covert overt” by asking blunt, straightforward questions of those you suspect may be thinking about suicide. 

Dr. Nathaniel Ivers is the department chairman and an associate professor in the Department of Counseling at Wake Forest University.

The Psych Central Podcast is hosted by award-winning speaker and podcaster, Gabe Howard. Gabe can be found on his website at gabehoward.com.
