Many graduate students (and even mental health professionals) only learn about suicide after they have lost a client, colleague, family member, or friend to suicide. This article sheds some light on the reality of suicide and the importance of and understanding of suicide in social work practice. Check it out and make sure that you are educated! 

Side note: The article uses the phrase “committed suicide,” and this is not proper language to use when discussing suicide. Be sure that when you discuss suicide, you use language such as “died by suicide” or “completed suicide” so as not to perpetuate the already-prevalent stigma around this topic.
