Suicide is a complicated topic. I mean, in some societies ritualized suicides are not unknown while ours, expressing a concrete suicidal ideation will get you locked up for observation on suicide watch. In fact, if you express a concrete plan to a health care provider and that person does not take certain defined steps and you off yourself, that provider might well have some litigation exposure. It's a real example of the paternalism that runs through much of our society. One of my older brothers hung himself. He moved from Canada to the US to join the USAF and fight in Vietnam. He was never the same when he came home and did it in the late 70s.
