  • Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Have any of you had good experiences with therapy, out- or inpatient? Do you think everyone should try getting help before considering suicide?

I've had cbt twice before. It didn't help me. It's good for people with temporary issues which they can talk through with someone. For anyone with long-standing mental issues, it doesn't help. That's my opinion of it anyway. For other people it might be different.

I am unable to do therapy because I shut down, but I know people on both sides. I know people who did therapy and it didn't work, but I also know people who are doing pretty good now thanks to it.

I've also had my fair share of treatment, so far without success.

I might give it another try though. Looks like I won't stick to my ctb "deadline" (July 31th)

I've had therapy before and I found the sessions to be pleasant but ultimately inconsequential to solving anything.

I’m currently receiving systematical therapy and two other kinds I don’t know the name of in English, for me it’s to early to tell if it’s working since I just went trough the whole diagnostic period, and just started it. I do think you should consider therapy or any other kind of help before suicide, that way you can at least say you have tried everything. Though I’m not sure if sticking around long enough to see if it helps works for all of us since we’re all different.
