People who are suicidal need professional help. They need ongoing , tailored made treatment to help them to overcome whatever they are facing. We aren't in a position to do that for them.
There's too many sociopaths, haters, trolls and callous people on here, and they could cause a vulnerable person to carry out their threat of suicide. When someone is depressed, unstable and vulnerable, the last thing they need is someone on here to hurt them even more.1

So, even though we firmly believe that this community can be incredibly helpful, anything that’s related to committing suicide or suicidal tendencies should be handled by a professional.
This is why we do reach out to every asker or opinion owner who displays those tendencies with information on a hotline where they can get help from professionals and a link to this myTake: www.girlsaskguys.com/.../a6861-a-guide-to-suicide-awareness-prevention4
