Suicide is act of intentionally taking your own life. A lot of people think about suicide during some point in their life. Suicidal feelings can affect anyone of any age, gender, background and at any time. They can range from thinking about ending your life or that people would be better off if you weren’t around to thinking about methods of suicide or making clear plans to take your own life. If you are feeling suicidal, you might feel scared and overwhelmed by these feelings and you might not even understand them. These feelings might build over time and you might not necessarily feel like you want to die, but more like you can’t go on enduring the difficulties that you are experiencing.
