Suicide is explored with a view to prevention. 16 myths are presented in a test-of-knowledge format; “facts” are then explained using studies & case examples. Warning signs of possible suicidal intent are provided in a table. The authors discuss what types of things should be considered in assessing the seriousness of a suicidal crisis. They also discuss what not to do when attempting to help a person in crisis. The document ends by discussing the kinds of resources available to caregivers. RM
