Kerri Gray, prevention manager for ReDiscover, joins the show to discuss a community task force sponsored by Lee's Summit CARES focusing on youth mental health and suicide prevention. The task force was born after community response to a pair of suicides in the Lee's Summit community this past fall. The goal of the task force, she says, is both to keep on mental health at the forefront of public conversation, but also to provide a needed resource for parents in search of help and answers for their children.
