I'm interested to know what others think about this. ''If someone commits suicide, do you think they were suffering from a mental disorder?'' Most people associate suicide with mental illness, when in fact only 10% of people who commit suicide are mentally ill. The psychiatrist I see said that lots of people commit suicide out of choice. A choice that isn't distorted by mental ill health. I believe that some people just can't be bothered with life, nothing to do with depression. It seems wrong that everyone who feels suicidal is encouraged to seek professional help. Can't some people just be pro choice?
