Letter: Refusal of treatment to blame for teen's suicide
I recently lost my great-nephew Josh. He was only 19 years old. He took his own life from depression.
I feel he had reached his bottom, because he was seeking treatment. He was excited about going. On Sept 22, 2009 he had an appointment at a treatment center in the early afternoon. They turned him away because they said they didn't have any room. Well later that day is when he attempted suicide and passed away on Sept 25.
