10 Incredibly Depressing Facts About Suicide



Suicide does not simply affect just the one person suffering from depression who wants to take their life into their own hands. Instead, suicide will affect every single person who is left behind, including family, friends, and other loved ones who want nothing more than to hold the individual once more in their arms. It is deeply disheartening and sad to read about someone taking their own life, but that is a sad fact of the world we live in. Today, there are more suicides than murders in some cities. Here are ten incredibly depressing facts about suicide.
