Re: Living with someone who is suicidal?

Helen you're doing an amazing job posting here whilst still going through a tough time with your daughter - thank you for doing this.

Re: Living with someone who is suicidal?

This is all very new and raw to me.
I'm here because I feel like I need to talk with others in the same situation.
