Here is a very good non-faith based link for suicide prevention

http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/suicide-prevention/index.shtml

Here is a faith-based approach to the issue by Brian Sumner




Remember when Brian Sumner skated like a madman and partied too much?



I do. He still rips pretty hard for an old guy.

I was watching an old clip of Sumner and stumbled across this Willie Santos edit. Pretty sick.

On another thought . Is there no situation were suicide is acceptable ? or ok to do ?

Besides ppl who are termanily ill ?

It is to my understanding, based on the equal value of every human life, that there is never a case where suicide is morally acceptable.

say im 98 years old, i've lived a complete life and i want to go before my body and mind are in such a state where life is no longer enjoyable, is it acceptable to end my life in that situation?

arent you supposed to be dead?

What if I decide to kill myself for the purpose of donating my organs to save like 5 lives? Considering all lives are equal, wouldn't that be a net gain of 4 lives?

As a christian, do you masturbate?
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

I'm pretty sure many people have said this already, but it's worth reiterating : It will get better.
Life is short, but it's also pretty long if you think about it.  Weeks, months, years down the road, who knows where you'll be?
You might be in the best place you've ever been.  
I agree with Ben, you have to accept the things in life.  It's the bad things that make the good things that much better imo.
L33tG33k, I don't know how bad you've had it, but I feel like I went though something similar in my childhood.  I've always had weird identity issues growing up (Moved from place to place, culture shock, parental expectations vs. what I wanted to be, etc.) so I always felt disconnected somewhat from the people around me.  But as time passed, I learned to like the alone time, and got to meet a lot of great people that didn't treat me like an outcast.  I don't know the key to being happy, but the best advice I can really give you is give it your all, and appreciate what you got.

I have a question for someone who is fiscally conservative. If someone has to be on life support to live, but it's being funded from your tax dollars, is that life still worth living?

edit:
I don't want to start a left vs. right argument. I'm just genuinely curious.
i was not vaccinated as a child and i turned out fine.

This is an important ethics question: I would say it depends on the case. If someone has a viable chance of living some life out and/or recovering from the ailment that is causing them to be on life support, then there would be no pragmatic justification (financial reasons or other) for removing the life support. Conversely, if the life support is the only thing keeping the individual alive at the bare minimum in an obvious vegetative state (i.e., no brain activity whatsoever, etc.) for prolonged time and there is no viable chance of recovery, then removing the 'heroic means' of sustaining that life is justifiable.

These are obviously tough emotional situations, but the oaths doctors sign on for when they enter the practice is to do what they can to promote life, not initiate unnecessary/avoidable deaths. This keeps hospitals (theoretically) safe places to go.

Suicide is a very serious topic. And I do care.

Maybe this video might shed some light to those in a dark place right now.

Where's this quote from?

My arms and legs look like a chopping block but yes, skateboarding helps.

There's not one day that goes by that I haven't thought about it much like shooting a bag of dope or drowning myself in a gallon of whiskey. What stops me is I usually fail in my attempts or I just skate the misery away.

Why do you need to get fucked, to begin with? Find it and make it manageble, you'll be better off.

I used to take comfort in the fact that I could just kill myself if my anxiety, health and depression got any worse. Then I became a father and now I have anexity about dieing because that would ruin my wife and my sons life. It’s been an interesting evolution. To be completely non suicidal but have constant health anexity because worse than death to me is disabling health problems that stop you from being a good provider and role model. I have two autoimmune diseases that I just keep down with a stupid diet and supplements.
