After some conversation with other mods and site admins, etc., I've asked a friend of mine, who works in the field, to put together a list of links that might not only pertain to depression and suicide but also to some of the more unique problems that are presented to individuals who fight, train, or have experienced head trauma.  Please feel free to post links or other materials that you feel would be helpful as well.
 
This is a topic that has come up quite a bit around here, and is a genuine concern, so hopefully everyone will keep it constructive and respectful.

We've had a depression and suicide problem on this site for a while now.

 

I think with the tragic suicide of Robin Williams it's time to have a real conversation about this.

I agree, outside of the situations we even know about on the UG/OG, how many of the more private posters who don't have any members on any kind of outside social media or anything have just gone away, and we never know what happened, I'm positive that more than a couple of those people probably went down that route.

 

The OG itself is a great resource for when you are feeling depressed or suicidal.   Oboe's thread for hurting OG'ers should be on the list of resources in the OP.

Good idea about Oboe's thread.

Suicide is definately not the answer nor are drugs and alcohol. I am against all 3. Glad there are Forums and Individuals that are ready to step up and help total strangers. Good stuff man!

Love this site!

Pain Is TEMPORARY!!!! It May Last A Minute, Or An Hour, Or A Day, Or A Year, But Eventually It Will Subside And Something Else Will Take Its Place.

If I Quit, However, IT LASTS FOREVER....
