Excuse the length, i’m nor 100% sure if this post went thru, phone died. So I'm so sorry for the repeat. I’m in a two day ASIST (applied suicide intervention skills training) training. We filled out some basic questions about suicide, all anonymous. One was when you last thought about suicide. I answered honestly... Kinda. I marked and then xxed it out. I was surprised someone else said they had thoughts in the last year. In small groups we did intros and our personal/professional relationship to suicide. A few therapists/Drs went before me and shared that they have struggled with depression and suicidality and so did the teacher. Since I would probably never see these ppl again, I also very briefly talked about having severe depression growing uo, etc, lost people to suicide. It felt really odd, yet freeing. Even with ppl I've known for 8 years at work, I never have said anything about anything before. But in this context I felt comfortable. Do you share your symptoms/disorders with people you work with/what context would you and why/why not? I'm curious about your comfort levels. If you made it this far, thank you!
