"An accident of thought." If ever there was a good definition of suicide, this is it.

One of the scariest things about suicide is that it's contageous. In the town next to ours, 5 teens have died from suicide in a couple of years. Now my son's attempt will have other kids thinking of ending their lives. One already has, and ended up in a day program.

I'm petrified to have my son home again because if he tries again and is successful, I don't think I could live with the pain,

Margalit, I so wish I could think of something comforting and reassuring to say.

A school in another Australian state has had 4 students suicide in the last 6 months. I'm sure all the parents of teenagers at that school are living in fear. Our teenaged children are precious to us beyond their comprehension.

My prayers are for your sons safety.

Well said. We need to keep depression in the public eye.
