Winner of the first prize "Pergola Arte" in Florence, essay section.The authors are special: Eugenio Gallavotti is a journalist who met the darkest moment of his life (in 2002), Mario Savino is the psychiatrist who saved his life. After many years, they wanted to pass on to their readers their personal stories and their experiences, also thanks to the latest scientific discoveries about the identikit of potential suicide. A pamphlet that also does justice to so many clich's, still repurposed even by press, for example when they write "incomprehensible gesture" or "mysterious" in the titles of articles referring to a suicide. There is no mystery: in the vast majority of cases, suicide is simply the most dramatic epilogue of a widespread disease, depressive disorder, sometimes underestimated / not recognized even by sufferers. One of the main theses of the book is not without hope: suicide is NOT something that can happen to everyone; in our brain there are mechanisms of self-protective inhibition that someone may not possess so solid and constant. A pamphlet of hope for millions of people suffering from depression and for their friends and family: here the new treatments / techniques to overcome the mental disorder are indicated and told. We also write about depression and anxiety, post partum depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder...The book is divided into several chapters: the predisposition to suicide; new treatments to overcome depression; suicide as it is treated by media; suicide in women, young and very young; in animals; the social danger of potential suicides; the successes and failures of a psychiatrist, told by Mario Savino; the assisted suicide; pamphlet appendices dedicated to brain stimulation machines and psychotherapy.
