Sara Scofield joins the podcast as an interview guest.  Sara and her family are no strangers to mental illness and suicide.  Three generations of men in her family have taken their own life and Sara has found a way to fight a genetic predisposition to bipolar disorder and suicidal ideation through therapy and medication.   Her work with the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Lane County and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has given her, and those she has been able to help, the ability to fight for their own lives while raising awareness to this preventable tragedy.

Anything she said today is not as a spokesperson for any organization, rather her own passion to stop suicide.
