Today: Chris Prochut , a former Illinois police commander who is now a mental health advocate and suicide prevention trainer, is on “Regionally Speaking” to talk about his personal story of survival. He nearly took his own life, while fighting his own mental health issues due to on-the-job stress. Side Effects Public Media’s Jake Harper and Lauren Bavis have a related story, about suicide watches. PNC vice president and chief economist Abbe Omodunbi has an assessment of the regional and national economic pictures. And we have another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.
