Washington, D.C. —Suicide is the second leading cause of death for those 10–34 years of age. With COVID-19, we’ve seen a scary increase in suicides, and if this horrific trajectory perpetuates, suicide will soon become the #1 killer of teens. Dr. Daniel Emina, a psychiatrist and associate medical. Dr. Emina’s therapeutic practices reflect the findings from his clinic’s database of brain scans—the largest in the world—including more than three hundred people who have attempted suicide. Combining these findings and years of practice—along with Lawrence’s background as a sought-after Christian editor, author, and speaker—The Suicide Solution offers a unique approach to mental health through scientifically informed and theologically informed strategies.
“This book is for those struggling to find their way out of a cave of anxiety, depression, and ‘suicidality’—and it’s for anyone who cares for someone who’s found themselves lost in that cave,” write Dr. Emina and Lawrence. “Drawing from the transformational ‘whole person’ strategies of Jesus and informed by the clinical realities of anxiety, depression, and suicide, our hope is to help others embrace a narrative of life instead of death.”
Throughout The Suicide Solution, the authors use computer hardware and software as metaphors for the body’s biology and psychology to show how suicide is generally the culmination of a malfunction or failure of these two systems. Dr. Emina and Lawrence also include a vast array of simple, daily habits that enhance brain health—from walking barefoot outside to naming our negative self-stories.
