- "Have you been very unhappy lately?"
- "Have you been so very unhappy lately that you’ve been thinking about ending your life?"
- "Do you ever wish you could go to sleep and never wake up?"
- "You know, when people are as upset as you seem to be, they sometimes wish they were dead. I’m wondering if you’re feeling that way, too?"
