Many People Seriously Considering Suicide End Up Recovering Long-Term, Study Finds

HealthDay (2/17, Mozes) reports, “Nearly four in 10 people who seriously consider suicide end up recovering long-term, achieving a mental state that’s free of suicidal symptoms or thoughts,” a study published online Jan. 26 in the journal Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior suggests. After examining “nearly 2,900 formerly suicidal men and women,” researchers also found that “chances of recovery are more than seven times greater when a patient has a close confidant to trust and count on.”
