BBC News - Suicide risk reduced after talk therapy, study suggests

'Talk therapy sessions can help reduce the risk of suicide among high-risk groups, suggests a US study.

Researchers from John Hopkins University tracked more than 5,000 Danish people who had attempted suicide and later received psychosocial counselling.

They found suicides went down by 26% after five years, compared to people who had no therapy sessions.'

This is why talking therapy or counselling is so vital with mental health services.
To have someone listen to you in a safe environment, without judgement, is a real medicine in itself.
