Back from the edge


“As someone’s role changes in a profound way, their mood can change. People have characteristics that are lifelong, strengths and weaknesses that they bring to the challenges of life. In the face of stressors, those with greater vulnerability—social, character, emotional—are at greater risk for becoming demoralized, hopeless, depressed. And some of these will develop suicidal states. We need to move people back from the edge when suicide seems their only option, and intervene earlier.”
