What is the dominant emotion behind suicide? How does it create a state of mind that leads to suicidal ideation or the fatal act of suicide itself? And how do you survive the emotions when someone close to you commits this tragic act?

In a sensitive and piercing interview, Chrissie Pollard discusses this difficult subject with psychotherapist and co-founder of ITT Previn Karian. Considered as the extreme end of the Depression spectrum, Karian illuminates the driving emotion and specific state of mind that is then generated. Some responses are considered to break the fatality, along with the guilt of those left alive and picking up the pieces of their lives again.
