Being a mother of a daughter that just hung herself 12-10-2016, I wish there was more help for everyone from suffering depression or whatever is causing your pain. I too would like to see more intervention with suicidal victims. Please remember your family, friends andGod loves all of you and I pray that together we can get the right help for you all NOW! God bless

Hope brings nothing except pain. The western concept of hope is merely wishful thinking precluding action. Action is the only option that produces results. I've had suicidal ideation since age 12. Now at age 51, having no energy left for action, suicide is the default option. I'm composing a letter to my 10 year old daughter; topical suggestions from those who have lost a parent to suicide are welcomed.
