Seg. 1: Remembering Kate Spade. Seg. 2: Dialogue On Suicide Prevention

Segment 1: New York fashion icon kept Kansas City roots.

The death of fashion designer Kate Spade touched a nerve here locally. We speak with a local reporter who met Spade and remembers her as being very much Kansas Citian.

Segment 2, beginning at 15:01: Research on suicide prevention is progressing.

Conversations about depression and suicide prevention are difficult but necessary. We learn how research can help us improve our dialogue on mental health.

Help is out there. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available toll free, 24/7, at 1-800-273-8255.
