But recently, a British entrepreneur Wynford Dore came up with an idea, which he referred to as the Dore program.

Although all the three suicide attempts failed, Wynford really wanted to help his daughter and he consulted other medical practitioners to come up with the program.

The program involved victims carrying out simple exercises like catching bean bags while standing on a single leg, eye focusing and spinning on a single point at least three times.

Was The Program Successful?

Besides his daughter being completely cured by the program, it also recorded a success rate of about 80%. A lot of people, both children and adults have since then benefited from the program.
