Mental Health and Suicide Policy
While threats of suicide are taken with the utmost seriousness. We are not a self-help site for suicide or any sort of mental issues. We are not here to provide help for any psychological issues anyone may have.

No one here is a trained counsellor, physician or psychiatrist. (And even if they were, this is neither the time nor place for them to offer their services. )
Given that we are not trained, we cannot actually help. And for legal reasons we will not attempt to help either because any issues that could occur put us in precarious positions.

The logic here is that by attempting to offer aid, we are accepting responsibility for that person's well-being. And if something did happen, would would have failed to prevent their suicide. We didn't deliver adequate standard of care owed to them, thus making us (in the eyes of the law) negligent.

So in the event you need help dealing with depression, suicide or any other mental health issue... Please make use of these resources that can actually help:
List of Suicide Crisis hotlines (wikipedia)
Google (simply search "Suicide crisis hotline" to get results in your local area.)

To reiterate, do not use our forum to try to gain help... we are not trained to help. Please use the official help channels to get help quickly, efficiently and correctly.
