http://softenthefckup.com.au/betterif... "Better if You're Around" looks at interrupting the process of suicide. What happens when someone reaches that fork in the road?
For some, depression and suicide can be ongoing or even lifelong battles, but for the vast majority, it is a period where their coping strategy is temporarily overwhelmed.
Not only is help and support critical for those suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts, but the timing of that help and support is even more critical. If we're able to interrupt the process of suicide, Seiden's study showed there can be a 90% chance of ongoing survival. (http://www.seattlefriends.org/files/s...)
Why is it that we don't have this conversation with our mates or with our families? It's time to SoftenTheFckUp.
"Better if You're Around" is about starting a conversation with your mates to interrupt the process of suicide.
