Perspectives - Bluebird Run For Brookie B

Even before the pandemic, America's suicide rate was rising. In Tallahassee, the 2012 suicide death of 31-year old Brook Bowers prompted her parents - Mary and Bill - to start a yearly event to raise awareness and resources for local mental health providers. To talk about this year's Labor Day happening at the Alford Greenway are: Mary and Bill Bowers; and Cindy Foster with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Florida.
