Abstract:

This paper is a report of a particular suicide that had common themes of rejection and helplessness but at the same time had subtle features so that no one, including medical professionals, saw it coming. This special case is used as a basis to discuss broader aspects of suicide risks and to retrospectively look at points where interventions might take place in a set of similar circumstances. Keywords Alcohol, Drug abuse, Depression.
