Suicide is such an extreme thing. It's rare in psychiatric patients, believe it or not. Want proof? I'd rather not mention how long I've been seeing shrinks and other therapists but I've only been exposed to one suicide among other patients, plus a suicide in my workplace. Most of the time when someone threatens suicide they are asking for attention, they get the attention and don't actually kill themselves. I can see how suicide rates would be high in any high stress environment. I don't like news about suicide, to put it mildly. It sucks and steps should be taken to stop it or prevent it. It probably can't be completely stopped. I wish to heck it could. It is so awful.

Army's suicide rate has outside experts alarmed
Most died serving in Iraq after major combat phase

LUFKIN, Texas - Army Spc. Joseph Suell had been distressed before. He missed his wife and their daughters so badly last year that he was granted a short visit home from his yearlong assignment in South Korea.
It was a different story this year. In March, five months after completing his Korean tour and right after re-enlisting, the 24-year-old was sent to Kuwait and then Iraq.

The day after Father's Day, Suell died in Iraq, reportedly after taking a bottle of Tylenol. His death was classified as "nonhostile," but a military chaplain told Suell's wife, Rebecca, it was a suicide.
