Suicide
Suicide has been described as a permanent solution to a temporary problem.  People can feel this way when their stressors outweigh their coping resources and they can't see things getting any better.  If you are considering suicide, please click this link and read immediately:

    Suicide: Read This First  (http://www.metanoia.org/suicide) was written by
    Martha Ainsworth based on work by David Conroy, Ph.D.   Reprinted with

If you need to speak with someone NOW, you can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
In Cuyahoga County, the Crisis Line is (216) 623-6888.

If you are STILL intent on killing yourself after reading this, then call 911 or if you are safe to do so, take yourself to the nearest emergency room for psychiatric evaluation for hospitalization.

Suicidal behavior should ALWAYS be taken seriously.  If someone says something like "I might as well kill myself!", when upset, later ask them if they meant what they said or were very frustrated.  Please click on this link if you have concerns about someone else being suicidal:   If you know someone who is or might be suicidal

The main scientific organization is The American Association of Suicidology.  There is lots of information and links.

When suicide occurs, there are usually family and friends who are left in the wake.  The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a page that is a good place to start.  They also have a powerful 30 minute  video  about several families that lost a family member to suicide.

Suicide is NOT inevitable when treated.  Start to address this NOW.
