Depression and Suicide are Related
It is estimated that over 80% of suicides are related to depression. Treatment can be powerful deterrent to suicide.  Suicidal thinking is an alarm that should lead to immediate professional care.

several medications before
we found one that was
both effective and didn’t
have side effects I couldn’t
