Re-Educated Podcast: Suicide Prevention through Education

by Goutham Yegappan, Data Scientist, Center on Education and the Workforce, Host of the “Re-Educated” Podcast, and Graduate Student, at Georgetown University

What gives my life meaning and purpose that makes the suffering that I currently and will eventually endure, worthwhile? This is perhaps the most pressing question a person must answer at some point throughout their life. For every time we inevitably struggle, our reasons for trekking forward are shaken and thoroughly questioned.

Similarly, with love (episode 25), our education system fails us when it comes to contending with death and meaning. Western education seemingly over-values that which we can “know” and quantifiably observe while ignoring the immeasurable elements that are paramount to the human existence.  

To better understand these topics I spoke with Anne Moss Rogers, a mental health speaker, and author of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher’s Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk.

In this Re-Educated Podcast Episode, we discuss:

  • How to best support someone who is struggling with depression
  • Healthy ways to cope with struggling
  • The importance of resilience
  • How these concepts can be taught in schools

I hope that by normalizing conversations that are traditionally taboo in the educational space, the Re-Educated platform can be a place where these topics are brought to center stage, bringing awareness to that which we wish to conceal. I hope you enjoy the conversation!

This episode includes emotional topics including addiction, mental illness, grief, and suicide. If you or someone you love is experiencing an emotional crisis, call 988 and or text 741-741.
