There are many cases of people who cannot take tensions or depressions and commit suicide as it is really bad seeing this number of deaths coming up like anything everywhere.Depression point will come to every individual and ending life should not be the solution for that as anyone who falls into severe depression should fight for it and also if the point of ending life comes, just change your mind or divert it for a few minutes and the decision will again change isn't it? these people should be counseled well and stop them taking these worst action

Having one good friend is more than enough in anyone's life, but most of them do not have a good true friend for themselves.Perhaps you are right that a good friend can be of great help in these cases and over that this good friend should also have strong character to show a direction or else things will become really difficult as he will also be weak in this case, isn't it?

There are a lot of people in this world that suffer from depression, and I think that there are so many types of depression, that it can be hard to tell if someone is suffering with it. It is a mental illness, that really does have to be treated as with any other illness. Also with people that suffer so badly with depression that want to end their lives well, some people may not want to seek help, where others might want to. I think a lot depends on the individual.

friend of mine surprised all of us when he attempted to take his own life. None of us had a clue that he was capable of doing it. Thank God he was not successful. I really think that no one can tell who will commit this kind of thing. Depression is really a contributing factor.

This is the time when friends should be around. A little comfort and a slight tap on the shoulder ease the loads of doubts, pain and negativity. We can n ever blame these people who end their lives due to depression. At times, we really become helpless that we think ending one's life would answer everything. Depressed people are like those. let's be sensitive enough for the needs of people around us. We have friends out there who simply need our call or our hello. who knows, we might just be able to save a friend's life.....
