The Game – Show 217 – Mental Health

April 17, 2015
Guest: Stephen Kaplan, Director, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, San Mateo County
Topic: Mental Health and Suicide

We are all alarmed and deeply troubled by the seeming increase in deaths by suicide in our community, especially among young people. We talk with a Peninsula mental health services expert to ask why and what we can do. The Game is on.

Is our community emotionally unhealthy? Are the stresses of our modern, urban lives, the pressures to succeed, the very nature of life in our community, causing an increase in mental and emotional problems and death by suicide? We consider these complex and difficult questions with Stephen Kaplan, director of Behavioral Health and Recovery Services in San Mateo County.
