Suicidal Ideation: Dark thoughts can affect anyone


In a wide-ranging TV interview, Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan described painful palace discussions including the intense pressures that led the Duchess of Sussex to contemplate suicide. Markle revealed to Oprah Winfrey that at one point she had “uncontrollable suicidal thoughts.”

Tony Coder, the Executive Director of the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation says her candid discussion brings a national spotlight to the conversation about this dark battle.

“When you’re starting to have thoughts of suicide, that you shouldn’t be here, you know, I shouldn’t exist life is too hard, they come in a lot of different forms,” said Coder.
