I think suicide prevention is a misnomer and confusing for a self proclaimed left winger being manipulative and misleading lies that is costing the tax payers millions of dollars in life time incarceration of mildly troubled people.

Suicides are people who have been betrayed of their trust and personal sacrifices to the benefit of someone they believed in. For the few who they hear from, there are millions more who overcome and cope with emotional distress without the need of being tagged as mentally unstable for the rest of their lives. Losing trust and being betrayed are the leading cause of mental stress. Society in this day and age have been educated not to care about their family or friends or associates and that they are not allowed to be independent and self sufficient.

Independent self sufficient people are the most stable and becoming more uncommon after the education process has destroyed their will to be independent, and without independent confidence life is a hard way to live. We, society created these people and its up to government and schools to provide the idea of independence as a personal responsibility from childhood.

"Independent and self-sufficient" people are often the first to attempt suicide, once they have a personal health crisis, such as a stroke. I know. I work in health care. What is your panacea for them? (This is the type of judge mentality that is deeply frustrating)

"Society in this day and age have been educated not to care about their family or friends or associates and that they are not allowed to be independent and self sufficient."

a classic study in contradictory comments.

My2Cents, this is an article about how suicide intervention programs are saving lives, not about how the gubmint is preventing people from being independent. The story presents proof that these programs are working; do you have any data to support your claims ("Losing trust and being betrayed are the leading cause of mental stress.")?
