Anxiety Disorder


Older Adults




It has been well said that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. It would be more accurate to say that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary depression. For it is depression and the irrational and hopeless state of mind it can engender that is the true lethal ingredient. Suicide is seldom if ever a normal response to external stressors. 

Since it is in the very nature of even the most severe depression to remit spontaneously at some point, and since modern psychiatric treatments for depression are capable of restoring normal mood and hope within a matter of days or weeks, suicide as a result of depression is truly a needless tragedy.
