Understanding the Mental Health side of Suicide

The tragedy of suicide is not always the result of a mental illness – there can be other factors that can lead an individual in to suicide and we simply need to be open to this reality. The absence of hope. A broken heart. Bullying. Rational, deductive thinking. And so on…there are a lot of different aspects to all of this that cannot simply be explained as a “mental health condition”.
