SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION
The Researcher chooses the topic suicide to help people know how come teenager attempt to do suicide and to discover the real reasons for suicide and how to help. Suicide is an irrational desire to die. We use the term "irrational" here because no matter how bad a person's life is, suicide is a permanent solution to what is nearly always a temporary problem. Suicide also known as completed suicide is the "act of taking one's own life”. Attempted suicide or non fatal suicidal behavior is self injury with the desire to end one's life that does not result in death. Assisted suicide is when one individual helps another bring about their own death indirectly via providing either advice or the means to the end. This is in contrast to euthanasia where another person takes a more active role in bringing about a person’s death. Suicidal ideation is thinking of ending one's life. Suicide is a symptom and sign of serious depression. Depression is a treatable disorder, but often the treatment takes time, energy and effort on the part of the person whose feeling depressed. Sometimes, as a person who is depressed feels the energizing effects of an antidepressant medication, they will still feel depressed, but have more energy. It is during this time in treatment that many people turn to suicide and suicidal acts.
Suicide's effects are tragic and felt long after the individual has taken their own life. It is usually the second or third leading cause of death amongst teenagers, and remains one of the top ten leading causes of death well into middle-age. A person who dies by suicide leaves behind them a tangled confusion of family members and friends who try to make sense of a senseless and purposeless act.

For every attempted suicide, there is thought to be one or more people where the thought of suicide has never translated into an actual attempt. With over a half a million people making a...
