    Excellent discussion on a very important paper.
    Intrinsic to the definition of risk is the idea of prediction. If prediction is not possible we should stop using the term risk. As Dr Guttierrez infers, a patient presenting with the language of suicide is saying he is in a state of distress which, in some cases, though not all, may be alleviated by mental health treatment.
