According to one study, sighing serves as a mental and physical reset button and may bring some relief. Such relief is sorely needed for those grieving a suicide. The mental and physical toll can be detrimental if we don't find our way onto a path toward healing.
It's not that we shouldn't talk about suicide because we're afraid it'll be contagious, but we need to know HOW to talk about it. We need to be sensitive to our audience. We need to be considerate of other people's experiences. We need to be kind and understanding.
