Suicide

This chapter on suicide is different from previous chapters, as it's much more personal in tone. It's not meant to be a piece giving you facts and figures about the subject. Nor do I attempt to give any advice. Such a strip may in fact be written by me in the future, but this strip is about how the subject of suicide has touched my own life.

This is the penultimate chapter of the book. The last chapter will be a long piece detailing my own mental health struggles.

Very moving. From one mental healht nurse to another I've been there as well and you have captured the sense of the thing beautifully.

You certainly brought back some not too pleasant memories.

Excellent artwork too, by the way.

Cheers,

Stuart

\begin{quote}
Joseph et al (1993) draw attention to the links with attribution theory, which highlight the notion that people are driven to seek explanations for various life events and circumstances. In particular there is a need to explain unusual, unwanted or unexpected events. One of the ways this can be achieved is through the apportioning of blame. Research has shown that if such causal attributions are seen as controllable and internal, then symptoms such as depression, anxiety and guilt may result (Joseph et al, 1993).

Haven't you heard about Mr Calvin's blank ATM card and how other people have benefited from it? I'm Mr Randy Rodriguez. I want to share a blog and forums on how to get a real blank ATM card, i thank Mr Calvin who helped me with an already hacked ATM CARD and I was so poor without funds that I got frustrated. One morning while I was going through some stuff on the internet, I came across different comments of people testifying on how Mr Calvin has helped them from being poor to being rich through this already hacked ATM CARD. I was skeptical if this was true, I decided to contact him to know if he is real. He proved to me beyond all doubts that it was real. So I urgently ordered for my own blank ATM card by Contacting his email and today I'm also testifying about the good work of Mr Calvin. I never believed in it until the card was sent to me, which I am using today Contact the company now and become extremely rich too.
