Please remember as you read messages here that no one should ever give anyone else advice. Period.
Advice is counter to the mission for this board, which is friendly support, and that's it.
Some of the people on this board may have professional degrees, but they are not posting here in a professional capacity; they are posting here just like everyone else, as people who have lost someone to suicide, and are grieving.
If you are the type person who likes to advise others, please do not use this board for that purpose. Since we do not know all of the details of the lives of others, we are in no position to try to direct their lives.
(There's nothing wrong with gentle suggestions that do not imply that the other person is obligated to comply. Sometimes, just wording your messages more carefully will make a difference.)
