Suicide is the act of deliberately killing oneself. Suicidal behaviour is any action that can result in death, such as deliberately crashing a car, intentionally overdosing on alcohol/medication or attempting to cut the wrist or neck in a particular way that is intended to result in death. Usually people who try to end their lives feel that they need an escape because life is impossible to tolerate and the world would be better off without them. This might be because of a mental illness such as depression or bipolar disorder, extremely stressful life circumstances or a combination of both.
There aren’t always signs that someone is considering suicide—sometimes someone who has been struggling with life will suddenly get happier as they have decided the answer to their problems is suicide.
