    Hi,

    I am doing some research about suicide, and I came across this nice site. Hopefully it helps a lot of people out. I was wondering, what happens to a person who has surived a suicide attempt? Is going to therapy or a center mandatory or optional for the person? Could you tell me a little about how long therapy lasts? Any general information would be great, or even if you could give me a website with info like that. I really appreciate it!

    Maybe try google for specific laws regarding it. People from all over the world post here so you are going to get completely opposite answers from everyone.

    Ok. I'll pull a few from my hat [from the posts I've read]. Sometimes they put you in a psychiatric unit for up to 2 weeks where you get fed, clothed and you get a bed, you live with others in your position and you will recieve help.

    Other times they send you to the hospital, to a psychiatrist and then they send you home, and they may get into touch with you.

    But yeah, I've read tons of posts on here and everybody's experiences varies by location, maybe check around the after effects section.

    But anyway.. I'm quite sure there are a lot of factors involved when it comes to what kind of treatment one would get get. It really varies case to case.
