||A lot more girls than boys attempt suicide, but a lot more boys than girls succeed, if I remember correctly. I'm given to understand that boys tend to be much more willing to blast themselves to bits, hack themselves up, hang themselves, etc, whereas girls do the pills and razor-cutting thing instead - no more pleasant, maybe, but far less lethal.
It must be a lot scarier dealing with someone who's serious about suicide than it would be dealing with the 'cry for help' types. The stakes are so much higher. What do you do? Is there anything you can do besides try your best to put him on an even keel by talking to him?
Li'l Sis: Yo, that's a real grey area. Even by my lax standards.
