The Biggest Misconception About Suicide | MedCircle

In this quick video, double board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr Dom Sportelli uncovers one of the biggest misconceptions about suicide.

Knowing what to do when someone is in a suicide crisis can make all the difference. Especially because the signs of wanting to attempt suicide may be easy to miss: it is almost never as straightforward as “I want to die.”
