On one of the depression/bipolar blogs that I read there was a post about ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training). Carm took this training when I was first diagnosed and found it to be an excellent course, and thought that everyone should take it. Almost everyone comes in contact with someone with a mental illness, often someone in their family or a close friend. Isn’t it a good idea to be prepared?
Here’s a link to that post.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
