Editorial. Why Don’t We Talk About Suicide? Mental Health as a Buzz Word.

Mental Health as a Buzz Word.

I wrote this article earlier this week in response to the media swell in the aftermath of Jacintha Sladanha, the nurse who committed suicide following the now infamous prank phone call. It was published by Technorati yesterday evening where you can read it by clicking on the link. The only part I will publish on this blog is the Post Script, which comes at the article’s end.

At Eternity’s Gate. Vincent Van Gogh.

Post Script: This article was written prior to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, CT and therefore does not seek to comment upon the themes of suicide, gun control, and mental health in relation to this tragedy even as they may relate. The author does not feel comfortable publishing analysis upon this event at this time and seeks only to mourn the young lives and beautiful families of those lost and involved.
