"Break Down the Walls" is a five episode podcast mini-series about suicide prevention, focused on how we can best support loved ones and friends in need.

On Episode #3 we speak with Amelia Noor-Oshiro, MPH, a PhD Student in Social & Behavioral Sciences in the Department of Health, Behavior & Society at Johns Hopkins University.

The three talk about structural oppression and its role in suicidal ideation, personal responses to mental health and suicide, the struggles of people of color - specifically Muslim people - and other marginalized communities, and social justice.
