Suicide isn’t something people like to think about, and it is not something that gets talked about much. Unfortunately, the fact that suicide is taboo is a deterrent to getting people the help they need and makes it harder to recognize when someone is suicidal.
Talking about suicide, learning about suicide and understanding suicide is very important to try to curb this dangerous problem. Our Dallas TX suicide lawyers know that developing a deeper understanding of suicide is a key way to save lives. This is why suicide attorney Skip Simpson worked with renowned journalist and best-selling author C.C. Risenhoover on the book “The Suicide Lawyers: Exposing Lethal Secrets.”
The Suicide Lawyers: An Important Book to Read
C.C. Risenhoover is an award-winning investigative journalist who tackles the tough subjects. Risenhoover set out to write an important book that would empower loved ones and friends to better understand the danger signals that can indicate that someone is considering suicide.
Suicide is a major public health problem, as it is the third leading cause of death among young people between the ages of 15 and 24 in the United States. The number of annual deaths resulting from suicides is three times greater than the number of fatalities caused by AIDs, and 10,000 more people die by their own hand each year in suicides than die as a result of murders.
Suicide is more prevalent than one might think, with the number of suicides in the United State in the past fifteen years exceeding the number of deaths that occurred in battle during the whole of the 20th century.
In many of the tragic suicides that occur, family and friends are left feeling that they could have made a difference if they’d only known about the signs or had a better understanding of suicide dangers. C.C. Risenhoover’s book is written for those who want to know more, who want to understand the nature of suicide and who want to be able to protect their loved ones from giving into the temptation to end their own lives.
