This chapter discusses ways of dealing with a grieving person who is thinking of committing suicide, describing the case of Paula, who became very distressed over the death of the young girl she had been caring for. In her conservation with the author, she described an easily accomplished and well-thought-out plan to kill herself and her only son. The chapter explains that many people who commit suicide see physicians within three months prior to the act and that it is important for physicians to refer these people to professionals who can accurately evaluate their suicidal intentions.
