To the Editor:
Re “Fighting Suicide Is a Collective Task” (column, March 15):
I commend David Brooks for shining some light on the rising rates of suicide in the United States, particularly among adolescents.
Mr. Brooks is right in advocating an empathic, nonjudgmental approach to a friend or a family member who voices suicidal ideas or plans. But he doesn’t sufficiently emphasize that most people who end their own lives do so in the context of serious psychiatric illness, like major depressive disorder.
(Perhaps Mr. Brooks was alluding to this in his use of the phrase “chemical imbalance in the brain,” but this term is outdated and simplistic, as we now view major depression as due to complex biological, psychological and social factors.)
And while it is fine to encourage suicidal people to “talk about the pain,” it is usually risky to delay a professional evaluation by recommending, as Mr. Brooks suggests, that they “journal their thoughts.”
Finally, kudos to Mr. Brooks for noting the strong association between completed suicide and easy access to guns — another factor that can be addressed in a professional evaluation.

To the Editor:
David Brooks’s column about suicide is well balanced and informative. As the father of a daughter who took her life, I can testify that I missed the signals though I thought that I understood.
She left no note (most don’t), and we are left with the greatest mystery of our lives. She was our gift to the world.
To the Editor:
It is important for those close to a suicidal person to understand an important phenomenon addressed in David Brooks’s column: ambivalence. We must acknowledge the side that wants to die, but ally ourselves with the side that wants to live.
Emphasize that the anguish or pain will not remain the same. Do not be afraid to inquire directly about suicide; it is a myth that asking about suicide puts the thought in someone’s mind.
Conversely, the direct question allows the person to talk about his or her pain, and feel heard, seen, understood and less isolated. Nearly 70 percent of those who are intent upon suicide have communicated their intention to another person.
That communication requires responses that include seeking clinical evaluation, using safety plans, including recognizing warning signs, encouragement of self-awareness and identification of reasons for living.
I believe that everyone has something to live for. It might be a significant other, a pet, a cause, a job or the beauty of nature. We need to help the person identify it, and to remain by his or her side until the pain subsides.
Whether a person has weapons in his home or whether he has researched other methods to end his life is critically important to ask and to do something about.
The most important thing is to connect emotionally without being judgmental or providing false hope.
