Some misconceptions about suicide...

Hi, I am a person who has survived suicide as well as a social worker. While I really appreciate hearing the stories and perspectives in the podcast, I am concerned that the episodes are sometimes are expressing misconceptions about suicide. 1) That if a suicide is going to happen, its going to happen and there's "nothing you can do." As much as there is nothing that family members can do about a person's depression, this doesn't mean that we should give up hope that they will eventually recover. 2) If a suicide happens and the survivors believe that a completed suicide means that the person is in a better place now, that it's better that that person is now gone (e.g. Lindsay's story), this could be seen as encouraging suicidal people to kill themselves so that their families and loved ones can "move on." It's unrealistic and leads to believing that suicide is ultimately the best solution. While I value hearing Lindsay's story and I relate to understanding the suicide of *her* father as inevitable, this is a way of dealing with her own grief but it is NOT something that should be generalized to people who are currently suicidal or to individuals who have loved ones who are suicidal.
