Though I am not the expert from this area but let me put my thoughts -

Prime Reason of Suicide
- Mental illness i.e. depression, conduct disorders, and substance abuse.
- Family stress/dysfunction.
- Situational crises (e.g., traumatic death of a loved one, physical or sexual abuse, family violence).
- Environmental risks, including presence of a firearm in the home.

How can these be avoided as a community
- Family support, Peer support and close social networks can help in reduce the suicidal tendencies in youth.
- Cultural or religious beliefs that discourage suicide should be promoted as religion has a big factor in human life.
- Less expectation by the society increases life satisfaction, good self-esteem, sense of purpose.
- And last easy access to effective medical and mental health services

I would suggest trying once a week meetings with a counselor at school because children will open up to a counselor more than their own parents

Recently my mom told me that I howl at night while sleeping. Now I know it's normal for dogs to do that. But what does it mean when a human does it.

If I have a strong and real desire to torture, sexually mutilate, and murder serial killers, murderers, chimos, and various powerful psychopaths who get away with crimes, in the most painful and depraved ways imaginable, does that ironically mean I have psychopathic tendencies myself, or to the contrary, does it mean I am less psychopathic and more empathetic than most for having an extreme hatred of cruelty towards innocents? I was raised by gentle nerds and never suffered any sexual, physical, or serious emotional abuse from anyone, so revenge isnt a factor. I'm extremely curious about this.

Disclaimer: I know for a fact that I'm neither a psychopath or even a sociopath, simply because I have more empathy towards people in general than most do, cry easily and complain at bad things happening to others, etc, I'm just curious whether or not I would be VIEWED as a psychopath/sociopath or psychopathic
