WLBK Radio of Dekalb - Suicide Prevention Show

WLBK Radio of DeKalb (AM 1360 and FM 98.9) airs a Suicide Prevention show each Sunday morning at 9:30 AM CT. We encourage you to listen in on Terry Ryan and his guests as they open up the airwaves to the topic of suicide. Terry doesn’t shy away from suicide and realizes what it takes to end the stigma. We commend WLBK for having the show in their line-up and we’re grateful to Terry for hosting the show!

Together we will stand strong to save a life.
