From time to time there are posts in our forums or discussions in our chat rooms about Suicide.
This is a very serious medical subject that members on Spine-Health are not trained on and we should never make judgmental statements one way or the other.
I strongly recommend to EVERYONE here, where there is a post from a member about suicidal moments or from a member in chat talking about suicide, you ONLY refer them to some of the Suicide Support Resources. One of our moderators, Bruce, has complied a detailed list that everyone should be aware of
Suicide Help Resources
Inlcuded in that list is one important number:
National Suicide Helpline 1 800 784 2433 (USA only)
So, I am asking everyone here to help out, whenever you run across a situation like this, please DO NOT attempt to handle it yourself, the best course of action you can take is to pass on the Hotline Number and provide them with information
We would all appreciate this
