Study Shows We Can Stop Suicide By Talking it Out

A recent study published in the journal Lancet Psychiatry details research conducted by scientists with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in regards to the efficacy of psychosocial counseling. The study tracked at least 5,000 Danish patients who had attempted suicide at least once between the beginning of 1992 and the end of 2010.

The study indicated that suicide decreased by more than 25 percent over a five year course of treatment when compared with people who did not receive this treatment.
