Suicide, Guns, and Public Health: Most efforts to prevent suicide focus on why people take their lives. But as we understand more about who attempts suicide and when and where and why, it becomes increasingly clear that how a person attempts–the means they use–plays a key role in whether they live or die.
Many people believe two myths about suicide: 1) People who die by suicide have planned for a while and know how they want to do it; 2) If the method that the person wants to use is unavailable, they’ll just find another method. These statements myths because research shows the contrary.
