Fredric Matteson's role as an educator in the field of suicide prevention is to help others:
To understand the context of suicide before the core problem can be addressed To help teach others about the phenomenon of suicide (and its phenomena) To offer and help implement an educational program derived from the suicidal persons' own unique language and voices, their uncovered patterns (algorithms) and common themes To view being suicidal as an opportunity to "awaken" to a new, life-changing perspective To consider suicide as a spiritual crisis...a crisis of identity...a crisis of meaning
