The Doctors: The Tragic Death of Robin Williams
The whole world was shocked early this week when the news came out about legendary actor Robin Williams’s suicide. Understandably, many people have questions about why he did it and the events that led up to the event. For people seeking answers, The Doctors will try to provide comfort by talking to the actors who knew and worked with him.
The Doctors: Suicide Contagion
Dr. Phil will stop by The Doctors to discuss something called suicide contagion. It has been shown that when one person in a community commits suicide, the idea of suicide is more prevalent in everyone’s minds and the rate of suicide in that community can go up. This is particularly true when celebrities commit suicide. After the announcement of Marilyn Monroe’s death in the 1960s, it was originally suggested that it could be a suicide. As a result, suicide rates went up 12 percent that month compared to the same month of the previous year. Now that Robin Williams’s suicide was so well-publicized, is there a risk of suicide rates going up in the country?
The Doctors: Roadside Delivery
What would you do if you’re driving with your pregnant wife and she starts to give birth? The Doctors will talk to one man who decided to pull over and deliver the baby himself. This was their first child as well. That’s a pretty crazy way for someone to come into the world.
The Doctors: Young Girl Saves Her Mother’s Life
The Doctors will also talk to a 5-year-old girl who saved her mother’s life after her mother passed out. The young girl called 911 and got her mother the help she needs.
