  4. You might look into putting together a page on a “suicide contract” or “anti-suicide contract”. Different names, same thing. People will usually agree to terms, follow them and be honest about it. It is a temporary measure, like jumping from one ice flow to the next. It isn’t intended to prevent suicide, just to keep the person in process until the next step in getting help.

  5. Hi Carrie,

    I came across your site doing a google search and was very impressed with the support you offer to those with depression. I was wondering if I could potentially contribute by writing a guest post for your site’s blog on the process of applying for Social Security Disability with depression?

    I am a writer for the Social Security Disability Help Blog and know how difficult and confusing it can be to get approved for benefits.

    Please send me an email at if you think an article would help any of your readers and I would be happy to send over a draft for your review.

    Thank you for your time and consideration,

    Ram Meyyappan
