Exactly, if we broaden the horizons of our minds we can more easily come up with tangible solutions.
There is no doubt that we do not have enough institutions to help those who are on the edge.
That being said though, it's also a matter of the person wanting to get help.
Personally I chose not to get help, and escaped the cycle through my own determination..but that doesn't work for everyone, and I understand that.
It's easy for me to say the things I do because I've been there and done that..and also coached other people out of suicide so I feel it's something that we can all overcome.

I'm truly glad you've seemingly found some measure of peace in your life.
I hope that peace continues. For all of us.
I hope that one way or the other, we all find peace.
I am just not of the belief that there is one prescribed way that is the true path for all to follow.
Now now, lets not be selfish and think singularly as only what you are prepared for. There is an ENTIRE school worth of children that will be having feelings ranging from enjoying the afternoon off to completely devistated.
