Taking Suicide Out of the Darkness

"It’s vital that we get the word out, move suicide out of the darkness, and help people to see and treat it as the medical condition it is."

Steven Schonfeld

In 1968, when Steven Schonfeld ’74M (MD) was a 19-year-old college student, his father died by suicide. Thirty years later, his brother also died by suicide.
