SUICIDE RATES RISING


A pair of high profile suicides in the past ten days has raised consciousness on the topic and revealed new statistics from the CDC. The numbers are alarming, as suicide rates are on a sharp rise. In Louisiana, the CDC reports the suicide rate in our state has risen 29 percent since 1999. It’s more than 30% in 25 states. We will hear from a psychiatrist, support group leader, and family who lost their daughter to suicide.



SPECIAL SESSION PART THREE


Find out how the state’s budget uncertainty is taking a toll on two major state agencies, the Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) and the Department of Corrections. What would the impact on those agencies be as the budget stands today?
