Notice People Around You
We all have watched the documentary in Health class and that it was about a high school that have been through some horrible events such as there were 4 students that killed themselves. And on of the teachers was close to one of those students and he said that he talked to the student the night he killed himself and then two hours later the teacher gets a phone call saying that the student hung himself in his mother's bathroom. Scientist have figured out a way to drop the suicidal rates by 90% which is to physically restrict access to suicidal hotspots. I feel there has to be some other higher strategy to lower the rates than just physically restricting access to suicidal hotspots because maybe that person just needed to be asked if they were okay. Some people just want to know if anyone cares anymore.
Do you think that this is an effective strategy?
What would you do if you had a friend who was going through depression?
What other strategies can you think oh to help these people?
