A patient’s potential to suicide haunts most GPs at some stage in their working life. Many patients will endure incredibly stressful periods in their lives, and while you can offer all the support in the world there will always be the question of whether they need more.
In such situations, help offered by a person who can say “I understand – I’ve been there” can be invaluable. That’s where this resource comes into its own.
Holding on to Hope is a podcast series from Lifeline Australia, in which people who have survived periods of suicidality share their experience of how they rediscovered hope and the will to continue living.
Each story is narrated by the person who lived through the experience and aims to help not only the patient who is struggling but also those who are trying to support the patient.
These are very personal experiences with very powerful messages that may just hold the key to relieving someone’s despair.
Worthwhile knowing about this unique resource, as there is nothing else quite like it.
