New Life #403 – Suicide Prevention
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
How does social support and conversation help us contend with life and prevent suicidal feelings?
We are social creations. There is always conflict between a person and his environment.
To prevent suicide, it is necessary to build a new educational-social framework for everyone, to hold daily workshops in small groups to explore life, relationships, and emotions. In these discussions, even someone who is introverted will hear the words of others about life. Openness is gradually created.
At first, all of the garbage comes out of a person; everyone unloads his own baggage.
We try to connect in a circle, nobody criticizes others, and we try to reach a single opinion. Gradually, each one begins to feel that connection with a warm society is more important to him than his personal life. Instead of suicide, he begins to find a higher value to life.
Connection workshops make everyone equal, balance the differences, and help everyone acquire a higher meaning.
