Suicide

I keep seeing suicides in the news and around me and it hurts to imagine someone dying in that kind of distress.  I realize that is how most of us die but they made a choice to end this way.  How do we help them seek more humane choices or ways to die.  I don’t know if I believe in assisted suicide but what kind of real solutions can we offer?  Is it humane to let someone get so bereft they slit their wrists or hang themselves?  We obviously need better mental health care and more ideas.
