Pretty sure I don’t need to elaborate on the exceptional suckiness of the former. Re: the latter: I don’t care how cute the baby ends up being, you couldn’t pay me to do this again, even if my dumb eggs weren’t already pickled.

Yes! Asking a suicidal client to "guarantee their safety" is like a cardiologist asking a patient, "Can you guarantee you won't have a heart attack?" Suicide might seem volitional but suicidal urges can overpower a person.

For providers: It’s important to remember that you might have a different agenda from a suicidal person. Your agenda is for the individual to stay alive. Theirs is to stop suffering. —

Ask the suicidal person to create a "Hope Kit" with visual reminders of their reasons for living. Things like photos, writing, souvenirs.

Gentrification is trauma - people in gentrifying neighborhoods are hypervigilant with fear of being displaced.

Phrases like “The one thing that would make me feel less suicidal would be...” is especially fraught when talking to someone in extreme , including survivors.
