In fact, suicide is often a convergence of factors leading to a sudden, tragic event. In one study of people who survived a suicide attempt, almost half reported that the whole process, from the first suicidal thought to the final act, took 10 minutes or less.

Musings..... I work with an 11 year old who was diagnosed in utero with underdeveloped lungs (pulmonary hypoplasia,) he's had 13 surgeries now, and also has a 'messed up brain' (that's the 'clinical' term,) due to all of the anesthesia......
He has psychotic symptoms, rages and Trichotillomania (is nearly bald from pulling out his hair.) The brain stuff started about 2 years ago. he's gone after his mom with knives, and is generally a mess these days.

Parents talked at length the other night about how they're aware that they've failed as parents. Their son is suicidal and strange, doesnt relate well to peers. It's all pretty sad. They love him a lot..... So, I was sitting their listening to them and I asked "before your son had the mental health symptoms, did you question your parenting?"

They appeared shocked.... No, they actually hadn’t thought of themselves as bad parents when all he had was bad lungs and a heart condition. They saw it was medical issues. But b/c of the stigma of mental health issues, they now see themselves as bad parents b/c their son is bald, and strange, and aggressive.

No one offers to do a beef and beer for the kid with Trichotillomania and weird behaviors. No one raises money for the suicidal 11 year old. But in fact what happened to this kid is MEDICAL, a lack of oxygen to his brain made him this way. The brain is part of our whole medical system. and yet we still see it as separate.

 
So sad. Thank you for the good work you do.

People fear what they don't understand. Mental illness isn't a broken leg or a burst appendix or something else that can be remedied with a procedure. It's nebulous and ill-defined and yes - stigmatizing. It's something humanity has yet to grasp.
