     Topic: Suicide - FAQ
     Author: Graham Stoney, greyham@research.canon.oz.au
     Newsgroup: sci.psychology.misc, news.answers
     Archive: suicide/info
     Abstract: Attempts at suicide, and suicidal thoughts or feelings
     are usually a symptom indicating that a person isn't coping, often
     as a result of some event or series of events that they personally
     find overwhelmingly traumatic or distressing. In many cases, the
     events in question will pass, their impact can be mitigated, or
     their overwhelming nature will gradually fade if the person is
     able to make constructive choices about dealing with the crisis
     when it is at its worst. Since this can be extremely difficult,
     this article is an attempt to raise awareness about suicide, so
     that we may be better able to recognize and help other people in
     crisis, and also to find how to seek help or make better choices
     ourselves.
