SpeakingOfSuicide.com is a website for anyone touched in any way by suicide – people who think of suicide, people who have attempted suicide, people who have lost someone to suicide, and the professionals who help all of the above.

Although many of Speaking of Suicide‘s site’s posts are geared toward lay people, there is a section for mental health professionals who help individuals affected by suicidal urges or suicide loss. That section contains the following posts:
