Suicide in Sheboygan County: What’s the impact and how can we best address this local public health issue for the benefit of all? Don’t miss a 30-min segment of “A Closer Look,” a public affairs program airing Sunday, Oct. 11 at 8:30 a.m. on WHBL and WSCS. Sheboygan County Sheriff Todd Priebe is joined by Jonathan Tyler, mental health clinician with Aurora Health Care and Yurk Counseling, plus Denise Pazur with Empathos Resources, who lost her 18-year old son Stephen to suicide in 2000. Denise and the Empathos team are located here at Jake’s Cafe; A Creative Community. The panel discusses why more Sheboygan County citizens are dying by suicide than in the state or the Midwest, and what we can look for in others at risk as well as how to best help them. Once this program airs, it will be posted online on both WHBL and WSCS.
