Repeat Suicide Attempts Drop By 30% If ER Staff Do A Few Simple Things

Published June 17, 2020

Rumble / Weird ScienceNew research reveals it doesn't take much effort to prevent many people from attempting suicide again.
According to UPI, patients who received "brief interventions" and coordinated care were 30% less likely to try to take their own lives once more.
"Interventions" included phone calls and text messages to check on patients' well-being after discharge.
"Coordinated care" meant patients were referred to mental health professionals.
Clinicians also engage family and friends, who can support survivors of suicide attempts and ensure they receive appropriate care.
The outcome of these interventions was a three-fold increase in the likelihood that patients would pursue mental health care after discharge.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US. The CDC reports that in 2018, there were 1.4 million suicide attempts across the country.
In addition, CDC figures show the suicide rate has increased by roughly 30% over the past decade.

    Every month I am earning online more than $8650 by doing a very simply online job from my home. By doing this in my part time I was able to save enough to buy me a new car in just a few months.

      I am sorry but I don't see how earning $8650 helps prevent suicide.
