Presents a case illustration of a 37-year-old unemployed male who attempted suicide. Existing counseling did not represent accessible or acceptable help for the subject, who later indicated that he might have accepted help from his trade union. An interdisciplinary trade-union oriented counseling service for the unemployed is described. The tasks of such a service include stabilization of the personal situation, acute crisis intervention, & preventive work. (36 refs.)
