Suicide: The Forever Decision...
Paul G. Quinnett
Since the original publication of "Suicide: The Forever Decision" much more has been
learned about the relationship of brain disorders to suicide. One thing we know for certain:
treatment saves lives. Worldwide, untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide.
Suicide is also the leading cause of death for persons suffering from bipolar disorder. Since
suicidal thoughts and feelings are most frequently a symptom of impaired brain function --
for whatever reason -- I strongly encourage any distressed or depressed reader of my book to
seek professional consulation with a qualified behavioral healthcare provider or, at the very least,
arrange for a depression screening with your doctor. Reading a book may make you feel a bit better,
but it is counseling, treatment and medicines that saves lives. So don't wait, get help.
