Broadcast for Reps (Get help if you're suicidal)

The article is here, and feel free to throw this graphic around as much as you like.

Since I'm posting this in GD, let me expand on the article and reddit thread above:

We pick on one another here in GD. We poke, troll, and generally argue till we're breaking keyboards (up to 5 here). And, maybe, some of us go too far sometimes.

The point is, though, that I bet if I contacted anyone here in GD and told them I was depressed and thinking of hurting myself, they'd be there to listen and would get me the help I needed.

If you need help, broadcast. Let someone know.

Fly safe.

And advice to the logibros: do not break lock until they are out of harms way.

Confirming that I would indeed help. 7o.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

You and I have disagreed on many things in the past, this is not one of those times.

I wholeheartedly support this.

Such a short list of things in Eve forums I agree with.

This is one of them.

Plus 1.

And Broadcast for reps? That's genius.

That's actually the opposite of the (very limited) suicide prevention training I got. Pass them off to the professionals and disengage before you become their primary contact, because once that happens, you need to be available 24/7 for months.

I've seen statements from people here that make me believe otherwise, but probably for the majority here this would hold true. It would for me.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

This is actually true. Although it feels selfish or harsh, the most important thing you can do is make sure you get the person into the hands of professional folks as soon as possible. You are not passing the buck - if someone truly is on the brink, get them trained help.

That said, Rowell's comment is equally true: if someone reaches out to you, don't drop the ball and expect "someone else will take care of it". Stay with them till they are in pro hands.

+1. And if you're the sort of person who wouldn't help, do us all a favor and unsub now.
