Clues of impending suicide.
Clues of impending suicide. Designed to help those who might have to deal with potentially suicidal people to recognise hints, and to examine their own personal and professional attitudes, which can critically affect the people they are trying to care for. Examples are a school teacher who experiences subtle clues from an unpopular student, a doctor whose depressed patient overdoses on her prescription, a social worker who deals with a crisis, and a teacher who has to talk to the classmates of a teenager who has just committed suicide. Two policemen debate the merits of responding to suicide calls. USA.
This film is of historical interest and reflects the cultural attitudes of the country in which it was made, medical procedures and language of the time it was made. But the issues raised are timeless.
