Carol talks to experts about the many factors thought to affect suicide rates, from the western culture to the seasons. (Hint: It might not be the pattern that you think.) Her piece is part of a statewide media effort to address this crisis. Keep an eye on Breaking the Silence to see more from Carol (@carolmorton) and her colleagues.
