I questioned if I should share this website at the forum; but then I remembered having read at some time in the past that just talking about suicide does not cause people to commit suicide; and that it is better to help this person to talk about any suicidal thoughts he/she may have. It is when people don't talk openly, about topics such as this, that problems develop. The content of this article is excellent!


"Suicide is not chosen; it happens when pain exceeds resources for coping with pain."

"You can survive suicidal feelings if you do either of two things: (1.) find a way to reduce your pain, or (2.) find a way to increase your coping resources."
