Sadly, until countries develop better mental health care and the massive stigmas surrounding depression and other mental illnesses are stamped out, suicides will keep happening.

Mental heath issues like other ailments or disabilities that don't stand out
get less attention by the public at large. Mental issues need to be addressed
as it can cause people to not only be dangerous to them selves, but to  others
as well.

The stigma associated with mental deases prevents many people from getting
the attention they need.

I think most suicides and murders are by people who need physiological attention, but
society seems to  ignore their cries for help. Jail or prison does  nothing to help them.
We need to return to  institutioinal care, not like those of the past, but humane treatment
for those who need it, and clinics for those who can manage on their own.
