  1. This seems like a good ideal, although it will not be possible in practice. However, any improvement is good in terms of reducing suicide. Clegg noted I believe that there have been no or very few suicides among those who do reach government-sponsored treatment. I think the problem is that the majority of people with mental health problems do not seek or know where to seek effective mental health treatment. If the government cannot bring more of these lost souls into the system, they will certainly not come close to reducing suicide rates to zero.
