Today’s show was a little different. After the news broke that celebrity chef, author and television personality Anthony Bourdain had reportedly committed suicide, we just kind of fell into a conversation about dealing with depression and mental health. We were shocked at how many people called in and emailed their stories, who could relate to the topics being discussed.

We figured that since so many people were affected by this, it would be a good idea to post those portions of the show here so everyone could hear the conversation from all of the different perspectives.

If you or someone you know is contemplating, there are people out there that are trained to help. Do not be afraid to reach out to them.

Text the Crisis Text Line by texting “CONNECT” to 741741 in the United States.

Or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

You can listen to the entire portion of the show below.
