World Suicide Prevention Day Seeks to Raise Awareness

作者:佚名    文章来源:网络    点击数:    更新时间:2010-11-5
 
Suicide is a serious problem that can be prevented when more people talk about it

Every year, one million people commit suicide, according the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, leaving behind family and friends to grieve and wonder why. September is Suicide Prevention Month and, public health advocates are running campaigns to raise awareness about the warning signs of suicide and how to prevent it.

Joan Wickersham's father, Paul, committed suicide when he was 61 by shooting himself in the head. "It was a complete shock to have this happen in my family," she says.

For the next 15 years, the author tried to understand what seemed to her an incomprehensible reality: that her loving father chose to end his life.

"My father was a wonderful father," she says. "He was kind and witty, elegant and sophisticated, but he was also deeply in pain, deeply unhappy and very secretive. He had business pressures and he had health concerns, although nothing life threatening. He had all kinds of sadness in his life, which I think he really concealed very well."

Suicide, Wickersham says, is a double loss. "Not only did I lose my father, but I lost my sense of who my father was," she says. "And so you lose the person and you lose the memory of that person that in other circumstances could be comforting you. When my father died this way all the memories I had of him came into question because I had to question how well did I really know him?"
