DragonflySuicide and mental illness intersect in confusing ways for many people. Because both topics have been traditionally stigmatized, we often don't attempt truly understand mental illness until we have been diagnosed with a mental illness, a loved one has been diagnosed with a mental illness, or someone we care about has died by suicide. We hope that we can guide and lead you to the most relevant and reliable information about how mental illness and suicide can collide.
