In this episode of Alaska Insight, host Lori Townsend is joined by Susanna Marchuk, Executive Director for Alaska Careline, and Dustin Morris, Area Director of the Alaska Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, to discuss resources for preventing suicide, and how communities can heal when one does occur.
