The Mystery of a Mother’s Suicide

February 15, 2012

From the archives: How does someone cope with the loss of a parent and how does a parent’s suicide reverberate through a child’s life? We talked in August with Harvard Medical School assistant professor of psychiatry, Dr. Nancy Rappaport [1], who examined her own family history in the book “In Her Wake: A Child Psychiatrist Explores the Mystery of Her Mother’s Suicide” (Basic Books, Paperback, 2011).

If you need help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline [2] at 1-800-273-TALK.
