Losing Lambert Airs Tonight

NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania will be part of a live, participating studio audience tonight for OnQ Close-up: Teen Suicide on WQED at 7:30 p.m.

At 8 p.m., WQED will premiere the 30-minute documentary of Losing Lambert: A Journey of Survival and Hope.

The documentary tells the story of a NAMI volunteer, Kathy, who lost her son Lambert to suicide 16 years ago. She transformed her pain and loss into a life of helping other people.

We introduced Kathy to WQED producer David Solomon after another episode on teenage suicide we were part of in April. Click here to see a clip of our Executive Director Chris Michaels on that program.

Tune in to WQED tonight at 7:30 for this important episode.
