Suicides and suicide attempts are increasing in western Montana. I spoke first with Missoula County Sheriff’s Captain Rich Maricelli who compiled some recent statistics about suicide in our area.

What about the families and friends of suicide victims? How do they deal with the after effects of this tragedy?
