Suicide of Dad

My dad killed himself the day after Thanksgiving. He had a history of depression and was released from the hospital from the hospital (for a non-depression condition) 24 hours earlier. A week prior he had been hospitalized for his depression and sent home with a list of suicide prevention numbers. Due to my Dad living very far away it was always hard to know how he was doing. I am unsure of the qualityof treatment hew was receiving.

What questions would you ask his psychiatrist?

Does the psychiatrist have an obligation to talk to us?

Hi Amy,

I am so sorry for your loss and the manner in which it came about.

I am not a health expert (no one on this community is) so I encourage you to ask your questions about the psychiatrist on our Depression Community . Dr. Schwartz may be able to offer you some guidance. (((hugs)))
