DragonflySuicide and mental illness intersect in confusing ways for many people.

We hope that we can guide and lead you to the most relevant and reliable information about how mental illness and suicide can collide.

Im new hear but am struggling with mental illness and suicidal. Im really not feeling strong mentally anymore. My body physically wont let me be a human being. Im hurting alk the time and i don't have the strength to keep going. Im forced because suicide or assisted suicide is a faux pas.

I don't know how to begin. But I am here and I think maybe this is a first step. I'm not sure how to feel here. Am I in the right place when concerning myself and my own suicidal thoughts?
