    Or post it on every single forum without offering any solutions.
    Don't forget to accuse everyone of ignoring it.
     
  2. Incorrect: I haven't posted this on every single forum.
    Incorrect:
    I have not "accused" everyone of ignoring the issue. I took the trouble
    to post this link because I think it's a very serious problem that not
    enough is being done about. I haven't got a quick, ready-made solution,
    though I do have ideas that I am working on that I will offer in due
    course.
    I invite others to do the same. Working together we might be able make some progress on this.
     
  3. In the RE forum, "durgamata" has written a very
    thoughtful response to the Channel 4 link I posted. He said<font face="Arial" size="2"> that he couldn't imagine any threads more important
    than this one -- I agree. He has also downloaded the linked article to his own website which he is
    offering as a support and information resource. His website address is
    not working at the moment, but hopefully it will be
    soon.</font>
     
  4. For anyone interested, I'd like to recommend a book
    by Thomas Joiner, Professor of Psychology at Florida State University, called
    "Myths about Suicide". (Joiner's father committed suicide).
     
  5. Correction: durgamata is a lady, not a gentleman -- my apologies!
     

  6. Hi




    I'd like to recommend a great website on this subject:




    www.teachermentalhealth.org.uk








    A good discussion has now built up in the RE forum under this heading
    (Teaching mental health crisis), and it is also the subject-home of durgamata. So from now on I will be making
    my further contributions on that forum. Please come and join us to discuss this issue and work
    together to make things better!
