He will be successful with suicide.


Why will our local Community Mental Health not give us a referral to get our teenage son into a residential treatment center? They tell us that he does not fit "their criteria", as he has not attempted suicide. He is a high IQ teenager, and if and when he decides to commit suicide, he will not "attempt", he will be successful. The treatment facility we have contacted explains that Medicare will be paying for his care, and Community Mental health is just the gateway to the payment.
