Family of WRVO’s Chris Ulanowski publicly discusses his suicide

The family of Chris Ulanowski, the longtime news director of WRVO-FM in Oswego, N.Y., is speaking out about his suicide in a story in the Post-Standard at the one-year anniversary of his death.

“Most people didn’t know that the confident professional they heard on the air struggled with a severe mental illness called borderline personality disorder,” the newspaper noted, “which causes unstable moods, behaviors and personal relationships. One in 10 people who have it commit suicide — more than 50 times the rate in the general population — and more than half attempt suicide at least once.”
