Why do we try so hard to prevent suicide? We all die eventually and no one should be forced to live.

In brief: Suicide

Suicide is often the cause of depression and other brain illnesses.
Suicide causes the obvious loss of life, and also creates suffering, guilt, and sadness among those 'left behind'. It is not about forcing one to live, it is about treating an illness that makes individuals think of suicide. Suicide is harmful for the person that attempts or commits suicide and everyone who knows them.
