How many times do we see tragic consequences on the news because of family violence and bloodshed? How many times do we see displaced workers take horrific actions that lead to trauma and death?
Many people do not realize that a truly suicidal person may also be a homicidal individual. When people suffer from severe stress coupled with mental illness, their coping strategies are often insufficient to deal with life's realities.
If you or someone you love has stated that they "Can't take it anymore" or that they "want out", take it seriously! We are designed to stay alive and protect our loved ones. If a person's thoughts override that very basic instinct to live and love, something is very wrong!
