To be honest I don't think there is a one shop solution to this terrible situation. Suicide is as they say a long term solution to a short term problem. I speak as someone whose family has had 3 of the circle who took their own lives. So you are left behind with the question why? After talking about each of these events the truth is there is no one truth to the decision of someone to give up on life. If you are religious I suppose you could leave it to your belief  you will one day meet up with the person in the next life. But speaking as an atheist no such outlet is possible. At the end of the day you have to find some sort of acceptance, be you a believer or not, that the event is what it is after it happens. But at the same time trying to find those who have such feelings to understand no matter what the problem is there is a solution outside that of death.

Suicide is not an answer it is a question.

"This documentary contains some troubling subject matter, and viewer discretion is advised."

"Suicide: Our Forgotten Troubles"             
https://youtu.be/R5KHNGaZFbk



" 'Suicide: Our Forgotten Troubles',... is a documentary about the harrowing nature of spiking suicide rates in Northern Ireland."

"It tells the story of how Northern Ireland's transition into peace leaves a generation of Ceasefire Children vulnerable to suicide."

"This documentary follows the story of one victim, as his friends reflect on his life, lack of available psychological support by the state, and the common misconceptions of mental illness."
 
"It also gives an insight into how a post-conflict society continues to turn a blind eye to the importance of mental health services despite a suicide epidemic."

Re: suicide awareness,, THE WEE WALK

Even if you do not feel suicidal if you are sufferring from depression I would recommend you call Lifeline. They are easy to talk/discuss your feelings with and are there for you 24/7.

We all need help at times in our life and there is no shame in asking for help. I myself have just asked for help and actually felt better even taking that small step. It will be a long journey but I now have the help I need so much.

Please ring them and know you are not alone in that dark place. If you suffer alone it will only get worse and although I am only on the start of my journey with them I trust they will help me.

They can not make my hurt go away I am not expecting that but even after talking to lifeline twice it helped me a little. So a little step at a time is all one can take so please do not suffer alone. .talk to Helpline and I have all of you relating to this post in my thoughts, take care and lift the phone.
