"Just Because You're Suicidal
Doesn't Mean You're Crazy:
The Psychobiology of Suicide"

It’s like sitting with the author having a heartfelt conversation. She compels us to turn each page to learn more, to experience more, while garnering more hope at each turn.
What do suicidal thoughts really mean and where do they come from? How do you stop them? Why do suicidal people think they are crazy? And how can I help someone who is suicidal? Here you can learn how to keep yourself alive and learn how to keep someone else alive. Just follow the Jensen Suicide Prevention Peer Protocol, the JSP3©, outlined in this book.
