The Subject of Suicide
By suggestion of staff, I wanted to put this here to take some of the discussion away from the OP of the original thread who might not be in a place to handle it or want to deal with it.
It seems like there is a pretty large lack of knowledge and understanding on the subject of suicide, and that can lead to some very dangerous and insensitive assumptions of both victims and survivors.
I would like to provide a place to let survivors share their experiences and knowledge with people who may be asking 'why?'. A place for people who are misinformed on the subject to learn more about it. And a place for the loved ones of victims to lean for support.
