ON TILT | Suicide Prevention Month Week 2 | Black Suicide Rates & Policing in America

In this second week of Suicide Prevention Month, the discussion ON TiLT with Dannielle Brown and Julius Boatwright will center in on the increased rates of suicides among Black youth (specifically Black girls). Black males typically have a higher suicide rate in comparison to Black girls and women, yet that trend is changing along with suicide rates among law enforcement and the criminalization of suicide in other countries worldwide.


ON TiLT | The State of Black Mental Health and Policing in America is a podcast focused on ways black people can maintain good mental health despite being affected by the brutal policing in America.

ON TiLT is co-hosted by Julius Boatwright, Founder & CEO of Steel Smiling Pittsburgh, and Dannielle Brown, Founder and CEO of The Marquis Jaylen Brown Foundation.
