This explains the suicide. If a person thinks that there is no help at all available, it is very difficult to continue on living.

Just a note on the side: Things have changed slightly in the Recovery over the years. In the past, psychological illness were seen as a spiritual weakness (ie. calling on the Lord and praying will solve it all). But now the saints are realizing that some of these ones need help from a psychiatrist or psychologist. When I was in the FTTA, some of the trainees WERE in fact encouraged to see their doctor and take medication.

The sad thing is, in some cases the brother/sister doesn't need a doctor or medication. They really just need some personal and practical counseling (both spiritual or non-spiritual). Some others just need a friend...
