8. I agree with you about brain development.

I think Pediatric specialties (including Ped Psychiatry) are more appropriate for the below-25 group. I've been on this team for years.

No doubt, availability of mental health services and elimination of prejudice and bias against those seeking help would be the best thing in combatting suicide.

But I still think that removing the most convenient instruments of death is helpful in lowering suicides, particularly for those who haven't had time to be identified and referred for help.
