I believe that many people who have contemplated, attempted or succeeded at suicide did so without really wanting to die. They desired instead an end to their pain. They do not know what to do and have lost hope. Their suffering has become so unbearable that they can’t see any other way to find relief except through death. Thus, I think it is imperative that we teach those at risk coping skills and finding a productive way out. Many suicidal people are conflicted about ending their lives. What are your thoughts?
