Its article warns how high-profile suicides such as that of Aaron Hernandez can trigger the well-known copy-cat effect. Suicide expert Kay Jamison covered that in her book "Night Falls Fast."
But what the media and experts miss discussing is that a suicide can strengthen others' resolve to solve their problems. Those include taming the inner demons.
Those suffering with real-life and mental health challenges frequently leverage a suicide to gain perspective. For example, in recovery groups suicides happen. The shock and sadness can move the members to the realization that they aren't doing so bad after all. At least, apparently not as badly as the men and women who fatally shot themselves or jumped out the window.
In addition, others' suicides provide material to analyze and learn. A suicide in a central Connecticut recovery group made obvious to the other members the need to share, at least with a sponsor, the monsters of the mind. A lawyer in an insurance company hadn't done that with his anger about the twists and turns in his divorce. That lesson was absorbed the other members.
In short, suicide, just like everything else, can be put to productive use.
