Why People Commit Suicide ?
When the emotionally stressed individual finds to be encircled by problems that are beyond one’s capacity to solve and find solutions, suicide happens to be the only solution for them. Though there can’t be single reason why a person commits suicide, the common motive almost in all suicide cases is to protect one’s honor, self- respect and pride. Over 90 percent of people who die by suicide have a mental illness at the time of their death and the most common mental illness is depression.
“Untreated depression is the number one cause for suicide”

How can anyone help person having suicidal tendencies?
Always take suicidal comments very seriously: When a person says that he or she is thinking about suicide, you must always take the comments seriously. Assuming that the person is only seeking attention is a very serious and potential disaster.
Try not to act shocked: The person is already highly distressed, and if you are shocked by what is said, the person will become more distressed. Stay calm, and talk with him or her in a matter-of-fact manner, but get help immediately. If the person is at a high risk for suicide, reach out to us immediately.
Comfort the person with words of encouragement: Use common sense to offer words of support. Remember that intense emotional pain can be overwhelming, so be as gentle and caring as possible. There is no script to use in situations like these, because each person and each situation is different. Listen carefully, and offer encouraging words when appropriate.
Let the person know that you are deeply concerned: Tell the person that you are concerned, and show them that you are concerned. A suicidal person is highly vulnerable and needs to feel that concern.
