Fighting suicide: The importance of hope

by Kathie Felix | Jan 08, 2019
In a new CT Online article, American Counseling Association Chief Professional Officer David Kaplan discusses the importance of hope in the fight against suicide—and provides a look at a range of strategies and statistics focused on this devastating public health issue.

“The possibility of instilling hope is one reason that counseling is so important for people who are thinking about suicide,” Kaplan writes. “Professional counselors are experts at helping people see that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem—and that there is hope for the future.”

Kaplan's article provides the latest information from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Suicide Prevention hotline.
