Suicide prevention must be transformed by integrating injury prevention and mental health perspectives to develop a mosaic of common risk public health interventions that address the diversity of populations and individuals whose mortality and morbidity contribute to the burdens of suicide and attempted suicide. Emphasizing distal preventive interventions, strategies must focus on people and places—and on related interpersonal factors and social contexts—to alter the life trajectories of people before they become suicidal. Attention also must be paid to those in the middle years—the age with the greatest overall burden. We need scientific and social processes that define priorities and assess their potential for reducing what has been a steadily increasing rate of suicide during the past decade. - American Public Health Association

Editor's warning: Part of this documentary shows how religious people try to interfere with a dying person's desire to end their suffering. They seem to be more interested in keeping someone suffering, especially when the medical community can't remove the pain and suffering. And, while the medical community has an ethics clause, is it really ethical to extend someone's suffering. We are only providing this video to show what the religious culture and it's religious laws often do to force people to live in pain. No wonder so many men end their lives with a gun, especially vets. Because they aren't allowed to exit this life. It's a sick level of a Christian Supremacists religious morality and the laws that those people who have taken over our laws to follow their religious teachings. It's a clear case of a coordination of religion and government.
