Re: “Cheryl Hanna's Suicide Confirms Mental Health Problems in Vermont

It is not just the stigma that keeps us from talking about a suicide. After 41 years, I still find it very painful to speak of my father's death. I have also seen that many times people back away from these painful topics. They don't want to be "touched" by it. It's a relief to me to be given the chance to be more open in this public discussion.

Seven Days:
I suggest coverage of these topics:
Please address the stigma of seeking help for mental health problems. This needs to be addressed over and over.
Create awareness of the symptoms of depression so that people may recognize the condition in themselves and others.
Suppose someone who is clearly depressed and suicidal approaches you. What if a family member of that person approaches you for help? How do you respond? What resources are available? What would happen if you took that person to the ER or called the Crisis Clinic?
If a family you know has experienced a death from suicide, how can you help that family heal? What should you avoid?
Keep up the good work,
Jennifer Kochman

Re: “Blue Jasmine

Rick, I certainly agree with your review. The scope of W. Allen's knowledge of humanity narrows by the decade. I would only add that Cate Blanchette did look terrific in her designers duds.
