I'm always on the lookout for good resources. I've added one to Way for Hope's Resources page today that gives a lot of information about suicide and, specifically, about how suicide can affect professionals in the medical field. Professionals of all kinds - doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, counselors, therapists, ministers, educational and community leaders, and many more - may seem to be exempt from having suicidal thoughts, but this is not true.

Whenever we can learn more and pass along information that might help others, we are doing something that changes the way mental health and suicide prevention is viewed.
