I've read... a lot about suicide online. If I do it this time around there will be nothing left to chance. Aside from that, the subject matter just fascinates me. Even some of the suicide prevention sites (some are just boring and ineffective) But one thing I noticed is that a lot of these sites and services (like the Samaritans) are based in the United Kingdom. Why is this? Is it some kind of epidemic there? The U.S. has slightly more suicides per 100,000 people, so maybe an epidemic among certain populations? Or have government leaders made prevention a priority? Yes, I'm an American and I'm used to everything being in America. atriot: With this though it seems like most are in the U.K.
