    You said, "All healthy humans think about suicide, and even homicide, from time to time.  We just don't act on these thoughts."

    You really think so?

    Because people might think, in passing, life sucks today and I should just kill myself. A passing thought. Nothing ever serious about it.

    Depression that leads to suicide is a very different thing.

        between depression beginning and a serious urge to kill yourself.

        Depression doesn't swoop in one day and ten minutes later, you're reaching for a gun.

        It's a progression. There's time to intervene. To reach for help. To see people who are having trouble and reach out to help them.
