Recently there have been a number of threads where members talk about being at the end of their rope, being totally frustrated, and at times talke about ending their own life.
This such a delicate subject and honestly the members at Spine-Health are not professional qualified in helping other members who have reached that point.
The best action plan for any member to take when dealing with a situation like that is to provide the member with hot line numbers. This way they can deal with someone who knows how to professional work in this environment.
Here are the important numbers:
Suicide Help Resources
UK : 08457 90 90 90
ROI: 1850 60 90 90
I strongly encourage using this as a way to help another member that is in distress. I know I do, because I know that I am not qualified to help people in these situations. And I dont want to be the person that said or did something that might push that person over the edge.
So, please, I ask everyone to take this very seriously. Both from a posters point of view and from those that are ready to respond.
