    I have to agree that is amazing, I actually spammed it every where for a bit. I now know about Boggle the owl. Awesome, cheers for this.

    "I don't like the phrase, 'a cry for help,'"...on the poster in question. I can agree with that, at a basic level.

    I still don't know that posters in therapists' anterooms save too many lives. Don't get me wrong--therapists can be helpful, and perhaps intervene if a client calls them on the phone or something. But they aren't usually there when the life vs. death branch point occurs. Being actively suicidal means being disorganized, so it's the police, paramedics, and ER personnel who have to intervene first. The therapy, if any, comes later.
