    1. Speaking about suicide in real terms I thinks makes a difference. It’s so easy to say it prevention month but what type of prevention. There are so many things that can possibly be doen on the front end. My father took meds as a teen but stopped as soon as he moved out. After that he never looked back. He didn’t see the problem. He was able to funtion for many years until he lsot his good paying job due to a lay off. After moeny trouble and age set in life changed. Gun laws can prevent some suicides but laws can’t stop those who are determined.
