Holiday Time can be Danger Time! So be forewarned and then forearmed
How can this be?
Most people do not want to die;
There are always solutions to problems;
They/You can talk;
Suicidal states of mind can be transient;
Helplessness can become hopefulness.
You can change your mind;
Save the life of a friend or your life;
Make a contract to live;
Tell a professional or a family member of friend;
Don’t keep secrets;
And be back for another year of work and the next holiday to be lived safely.
