Night Falls Fast

Noah speaks with clinical psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison about her new book "Night Falls Fast: Understanding Suicide." Jamison talks about how anguishing depression can be, and how difficult it is for people to talk to friends, loved ones, or strangers about suicide. She also discusses the high suicide rate for young people around the world, and especially for young women in China. "Night Falls Fast: Understanding Suicide" by Kay R. Jamison is published by Knopf.
