The author found in his work in Art Therapy distinctive lines & gestures on paper done by successful & potential suicides which he feels can be recognized in time, & which can become a valuable clue in alerting people in the helping profession to unsaid thoughts in the minds of nonverbal, inarticulate, despairing people. If these drawings & the concepts behind them can be explored by therapists, another way of reaching the potential suicide may be available.
