on the occasion of the celebration of the World Day against Suicide has taken place in the Asmablea Madrid a day with that "we want you to know that it is a national health problem. Last year, over 300 madrilenians committed suicide and the government of the Community of Madrid as well as the nation, should take it into consideration and design a National Plan of Suicide Prevention ", he explained to ABC José Manuel Dolader, director of the Phone Against Suicide.
"Unfortunately, he noted, recently took his own life a wonderful athlete, Blanca Fernández Ochoa. During the 11-day search for the body, 110 people have been killed in Spain with the same problems or similar to it. Anonymous people, not so loved by the whole of society, but that have left 110 broken families . Families that for a long time are going to be thinking about what they did wrong. And they have done nothing wrong, what happens is that in Spain still not talking about it enough of this topic, nor are given the proper tools for prevention. 110 families is one thing to be very aware".In the picture: (from left. to right), attendees at the memorial event: Iñaki Santos, president of Aeprepol; José Manuel Doladre, director of the Phone against Suicide; Ana Lancho, president of the Association of The Guardrail; and Nestor Szelman, psychiatrist and director of Mental Health of the Gregorio Marañon - Ignacio Gil
in Addition to the National Plan, Dolader considers it necessary "that the Security forces of the State, psychologists, psychiatrists... us to join the cause and fight for a to give light to a subject that almost never speaks."
he Explains that everything remains to be done. "After this day we are going to see, as has already happened in other occasions, calls to the Phone Against Suicide is going to triple . That means that people need help and by the celebration of days like this people know that there are certain resources in order to provide solutions to problems as serious. We do not try to give publicity to our telephone, but inicidir in the State should facilitate this type of tools , as there are to solve other social ills such as gender-based violence".
Each day, an average of 10 people call this phone is staffed by psychology professionals 24 hours a day. Call with great suffering and know that, on the other hand, is there anyone anonymous is interested in them and their situation free of charge. But also 50% of the calls are from family members alerted by not knowing what to do before a person who wants to commit suicide.
When someone begins to lose friends, isolating, feeling sad, depressed, says life is not worth thinking..., "you quickly go to the gp to take action. Sometimes there is a father or mother, you may tell the doctor because it is trusted or a phone that is anonymous. Need to break the myth and the primary care physician caring for people with depression, who dare to ask them if they have had suicidal thoughts at some time.
general practitioners are essential to save lives . Also care more quickly in psychology and psquiatría to that consultation does not delay for months for the affected", concludes Dolader.
at The end of the day, the councillor for Social Policy, Family, Gender, and Birth of the Community of Madrid, Alberto Reyero , decided to give visibility and to prevent the problem of suicide with a regional plan to end this scourge. "This is a problem that many times is known only to stroke of the press, or because the situation touches you in a personal way.
this Is an important issue that exists in every Community and in Spain in general. For every 20 people with suicidal thoughts, one of them is suicidal," said Reyero.
he Insisted on the need "to speak openly about this issue because it produces an effect "opposite" to incite to suicide; that is to say, help those people that are taking that idea. For them, since the Community will have a Regional Plan of Suicide coordinated with Health to go hand in hand in the design of "prevention measures", also thinking in schools in which there are children who "go through difficulties", he said.
