There are three statements I will read out loud. Please tell me which of these three statements best describes your situation when you attempted suicide [(' '/the last time)] - one, two, or three?

'One, I made a serious attempt to kill myself and it was only luck that I did not succeed.'
'Two, I tried to kill myself, but knew that the method was not fool-proof.'
'Three, my attempt was a cry for help, I did not intend to die.'
