Briefly covers myths, statistics, danger signs & the prevention of suicide. Myths include the beliefs that there are “types” of people who commit suicide & that those who threaten or attempt suicide won’t complete. 8 out of 10 suicides give some warning of their intent. Danger signs can be verbal or nonverbal, & prevention should include dealing openly with the person, getting help, & being a friend. (RM)
