What leads to people thinking about suicide?

Patterns of behaviour emerge from the
sad stories of suicide. In the wake of the recent tragic deaths by
suicide of five young Aboriginal people in our region, the Alice Springs
News spoke to Craig San Roque, a psychotherapist and member of the
steering committee of Life Promotion, Central Australia's suicide
prevention program. He has had experience over many years of
collaboration with Aboriginal people, in particular with traditional
healers. He speaks of the problems using the image of the hand.

"For some people suicide is structural, like the back of their hand,
with them all the time as a meditated, premeditated action, though it
may be disguised, covered over with a skin." KIERAN FINNANE reports.
