Suicide

What is suicide?

Suicide is when someone ends their life on purpose. However, most people who are thinking about suicide do not actually want to die. They just want to end their physical or emotional pain. Suicide is not a mental illness. Not all people who die by suicide have experienced a mental illness, but suicide is often linked to many different mental illnesses. It is important to take any talk or thoughts of suicide seriously and seek help immediately.
