Suicide Attempts Are Rarely Rational

Because suicide attempts are rarely rational, your response, however sincere, should not be one of tired cliches or viral memes.

Check out today’s linked article, but read the comments too. It’s always helpful to hear from those who have ‘been there and done that’, because they can help you help others.

And check out bpHope for more articles and information on bipolar depression.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, text ‘Start’ to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741. It’s free and confidential; and someone is available to talk to you 24/7. Visit their website at www.crisistextline.org for more information. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-8255) or NAMI (800-950-6264) for support and local referrals.
