Is such a painful subject to have ‘debates’ and ‘arguments’ about, it’s such a sensitive subject you need to be very clear on your views and ideas on why people commit this terrible act, and why they make this tragic decision.
I have personally been affected by two suicides, by two close friends, one of who I found hanging in her kitchen.
I don’t have answers as to why? I can only offer my ideas on how to prevent it.
It can be prevented by talking about it more, in a clear humane way. We can make other people aware of the pitfalls and life style choices that may contribute to those feelings of hopelessness. (drugs, relationships), educate the children at a young age to seek help whenever they have ‘strange’ thoughts or feelings. Educate the parents, teachers to spot young people with mental issues earlier, the sooner the better, the younger they gain all the knowledge, the better chance of growing up with a stronger mindset.
So many things WE as adults can do, right now, starting today.
