Kirk Minihane, controversial co-host of WEEI’s No. 1-ranked “Kirk & Callahan” show, said he was hospitalized last week after having “suicidal thoughts.” “I’ve talked a lot about my issues with depression, and I’ve battled it the last three months or so,” Minihane said in a tweet on Thursday afternoon. “Last Thursday night I checked into the ER at Winchester Hospital with suicidal thoughts. I was then moved to McLean, where I was treated and released earlier this week.” He added that he’d be back at work Friday morning, and he’s nervous about it. “But I’m not ashamed or embarrassed. And we’ll do what we do – we’ll talk about it,” he said. SUICIDE PREVENTION HELP: Here is information on suicide prevention from the National Institute of Mental Health.
