Before his suicide, Sandy Hook dad and neuroscientist sought origins of violence in the brain

“It’s Jeremy Richman who understood the brain and how it tries to trick you into violence, and he couldn’t find a way to deal with the issues with which he struggled,” Murphy said. “It speaks to how difficult it is for everyone else who’s going through trauma.”
In an interview with¬†ABC Radio,¬†Richman spoke about his daily struggles,. He said the time since his daughter’s death was an “infinite heartache.” But there was hope in helping. When asked what everyone else could do to help, Richman said, “having discussions about brain health, talking about your feelings and your motivations for doing things and recognizing that the brain is just another organ. … That’s really important. It’s not a character flaw if you feel depressed.”
