‘Most suicidal people are not psychotic or insane’

Just quickly pointing out these “truths” about suicide from the U.S. Navy. Not bad. Aside from the one mentioned above, there’s this: “Discussing the subject of suicide openly promotes help-seeking behavior. … By starting the discussion before these feelings occur, you are not giving a suicidal person morbid ideas or increasing risk. The opposite is true _ bringing up the subject of suicide and discussing it openly is one of the most helpful things you can do.”
