Mental Health and Suicide – Information Round-Up

As loyal readers know over the last couple of weeks I have written quite a few pieces both on the Burble and on Breaking Bipolar on suicide after a person I consider a friend attempted suicide. Luckily he is still with us, and I think the writings on the topic will help others who have been through a suicide attempt and the loved ones of those who have attempted suicide.

Something Good From a Suicide Attempt?

I don't want to say something "good" came out of my friend's suicide attempt because I think that diminishes his personal experience. But maybe others have been helped. And that is thanks to him. Thanks to his honesty and bravery in speaking about his suicide attempt. I'm honored to know him.

So here are articles for:

  • Those who have attempted suicide
  • Those who love someone who has attempted suicide
  • How to prevent a suicide attempt
