Sometimes our cultural influences, memes movies, music tell us what to do.

The point of the episode is to look at your own views and understanding about grit as it relates to your experiences and your treatment path.

Not your priest, your drinking buddies, or even what The Batman would do cuz you know he isn't right in the head. 

There are people that say this is a waste of time to put the anti-suicide contact info into blogs and social media. There are others that say yeah, you can do it and then what? 

I understand how they feel. If a person is gonna do it there isn't much you can do. But if there is a chance to reach somebody then I'm gonna leave this right here.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
