My guess is that he doesn't consider the economical impact because, to paraphrase McCoy, he's a doctor, not a economist.

Ugh, I moved to China and only then did I found out how much I remember people by their hair. Most Chinese people have very dark hair and a large amount of the girls wear it long and straight. The amount of times I was for sure I saw a colleague in the metro or somewhere else until they turned around are uncountable.

Hi Mike! Love the site and many thanks for featuring many of my hacks. Since Hackaday has been taken over by SupplyFrame, Hackaday seems to have taken on new things: the Hackaday prize and the Hackaday.io framework are two of them. Are there any other cool things you have in mind? A 3d-printer farm with your 3d printed things being delivered by drones perhaps? Sharks with lasercutters on their heads? A site which you can use to hit people in the head over the Internet?

Actually, at least in my part of the world, I see more and more couples (at leas at my workplace) sharing the responsibility. Both the man and woman work part-time and make sure the days they don't work overlap. That way, most of the week there's always a parent at home.

Much-needed (IMO) TL;DR: The solution is to send patients form letters with a noncommittal message like 'Hey, you checked out of hospital after your suicide attempt. We keep being interested in your wellbeing; drop us a line any time you like', and keep sending letters like that periodically. Even if they're form letters, in the mind of a suicidal person they seem to form a 'way out'; another option to suicide is always to write back and see what happens instead.

@OP: Couldn't you just have put that in the top post if that really is that important?
