Towards Reducing Suicides

Once suicide is respected as a civil and human right for all adults when it is done in private, then adults will be able to have open and honest conversations about suicide in private without fear of being victimized and traumatized by psychiatric coercion and confinement. There will be more opportunities to utilize persuasion, reason, and kindness to reduce suicides. Then we can potentially see a real significant reduction of suicides over the long term. Psychiatric coercion will never reduce suicides to zero. Authenticity peaceful persuasion is our best hope.
