The first WHO report on suicide prevention was published on 4 September 2014 at
Evidence fromThe report says limiting access to the means of suicide can help avoid suicide. In
Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the and a number of European countries reveals that limiting access to these means can help prevent people dying by suicide. Another key to reducing deaths by suicide is a commitment by national governments to the establishment and implementation of a coordinated plan of action. Currently, only 28 countries are known to have national suicide prevention strategies. United States
"I think it's extremely concerning that even just the terminology of rational suicide is being used ... it's an oxymoron."
Mr Marney says many people who survive after trying to take their own life are glad they did not die.
"I've had personal experience of a number of people who have committed suicide and a number of people who have tried to commit suicide and are still here, and I can tell you, they thought it was rational at the time," he said.
"Looking back, they're bloody glad they failed."
Psychiatrist Dr Chris Ryan says many people who want to end their lives are depressed and do not have the capacity to make decisions.

A decision may be taken under the Mental Capacity Act that a person 'lacks capacity'.
A decision to end life may be taken by doctors following the decision that the person 'lacks capacity'. This is a ‘rational’ assessment that such a course is more desirable than a decision to permit life to continue.
Such decisions are based, invariably, on quality of life but may such contemplation be a “rational contemplation”?
If it is the logic of the suicide that death is the preferred choice over life, then does life lack that ‘quality’ that makes it the preferred choice over death?
If the contemplation of suicide is not a ‘rational contemplation’ how may the contemplation of assisted suicide, either by action or non-action be a rational contemplation?

It is established that chronic spirochetal infection can cause slowly progressive dementia, brain atrophy and amyloid deposition in late neurosyphilis. Recently it has been suggested that various types of spirochetes, in an analogous way to Treponema pallidum, could cause dementia and may be involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Here, we review all data available in the literature on the detection of spirochetes in AD and critically analyze the association and causal relationship between spirochetes and AD following established criteria of Koch and Hill. The results show a statistically significant association between spirochetes and AD (P = 1.5 × 10-17, OR = 20, 95% CI = 8-60, N = 247). When neutral techniques recognizing all types of spirochetes were used, or the highly prevalent periodontal pathogen Treponemas were analyzed, spirochetes were observed in the brain in more than 90% of AD cases.

A number of innovative drugs are due to enter clinical trials and a daily drink, which is not a drug, is thought to reduce damage to neurone membranes.Amyloid Plaques
According to the Telegraph -
Recent research has focused on two pathological changes that take place in the brains of Alzheimer’s sufferers. The first is the deposition of amyloid plaques – lumps of protein that form in neurones and stop them working properly. The second is the build-up of “neurofibrillary tangles” caused by another abnormal protein, the tau protein.This is Elsevier Health –
Cystic profiles of borrelia closely correspond to the diverse profiles of plaques, namely they are always round, and are capable of increase in size from little to big as cystic spirochetal growth progresses. Maturation of cysts parallels ‘‘maturation’’ of plaques of increasing age, based on observations of spirochetal cysts in a tissue culture model. Cystic spirochetes in tissue culture incorporate injured cells into their interior regions. Amyloid fibrils within blood vessels of the brain may wind up within the plaque region, now redefined as spirochetal cyst ‘‘territory’’, merely because the rounded cyst ‘‘landed on a blood vessel’’ which contained amyloid in its wall. DNA hybridization methods demonstrate the areas where Borrelia DNA is deposited in the Alzheimer brain. Hybridizations using DNA from the spirochetedevelop a ‘‘map’’ of the terrain of the brain where, like little rounded villages and cities, rounded ‘‘map sites’’ of spirochetal DNA appear. Spirochetal sites on these ‘‘DNA maps’’ match the sites of the plaques in the Alzheimer brain. Now is the time for a new opportunity to re-evaluate Alzheimer’s diseasewith DNA mapping methods.
Anti-psychotics are prescribed to address difficult behaviour in cases of dementia such as Alzheimer's..
The corollary is that if spirochaete have been found in 7 out of 10 autopsy brain specimens from Alzheimer's victims may this also be the case in cases of the victims of Psychosis and other mental illness such as Bi-Polar?
The Mental Health profession does not use the psychiatric couch but the chemical straitjacket promoted by the pharmaceutical giants. Neither is going to relinquish their lucrative payroll readily.
Mental Health is also a political football. Those turned out of the institutions and psychiatric hospitals such as Netherne now live in the community in supported accommodation wandering, often wandering aimlessly filling their time at funded amenities, and the Community Health Teams are become the Recovery Services.
