Suburbs turn to Mental Health First Aid after suicide, heroin

Influenced in part by teen suicides and heroin deaths, and their links to mental health issues, conversations are starting across the suburbs about ways to do more about such problems, which affect as many as half of all Americans. "The more people that recognize what's going on and are able to reach out and help other people, I think the better outcomes we're going to have," said one therapist. "We've heard so many horrible things in the news lately, if one person had just said 'Are you OK?' maybe some of these things wouldn't have happened."
