I received the following message from a Canadian psychiatrist who gave permission to publish it.

From the diary of the lived experience of a psychiatrist:

“I spent over 4 hours on Tuesday night talking a chronically suicidal patient out of jumping off a bridge after multiple suicide attempts in the past two months, and convinced her to meet me at the hospital to get treatment that she needed to stay stable. A phone conversation that began with her at the bridge saying: “I just want to die”, ended 5 hours later, not with tragedy, but thankfully with a renewed sense of hope in the patient, and a desire to try again to work together toward a better path.
