How to stop a suicide

I want to tell you a story about a girl who thought she wanted to commit suicide. This isn’t a story about why she wanted to or what she did, but about how Christian Science saved her. It’s a story about how to stop a suicide.

The particulars of this girl’s story aren’t really important. What you need to know is that she felt worthless, hopeless, and alone. She felt so overwhelmed by her problems, and so incapable of solving them, that she often wondered what the point was in continuing to live.
