Hello, I'm new.

I don't suffer from depression but experienced someone close to me committing suicide. Since then I have been trying to understand suicide better... or something. I don't really know. I just want to know why it happened, so I find myself joining forums like this one in hopes of finding the answers to my questions.

Hi and welcome...sometimes we will never know, but what I do know is that you were a good friend...only someone who cared would put this type of effort in...please, if you feel you could have done anything different, and blame yourself in any way, do not...you did your best, and your friend had grave problems...welcome again, J

Hello, welcome to SF.

I hope you find at least some of the answers you're looking for here, but remember that each individual has his/her own reasons for looking towards suicide and, no matter how much you do/did blame yourself for, it was not your fault. The fact that you are currently joining forums like this one to understand shows that you did everything you could for him/her.
