(1) First Cause: When something is gravely wrong in a person’s life. As of anything bad that’s going on or something they can’t handle. For example financial problems, family problems, self-problems, and school problems. (2) Second Cause: Someone that have a mental or emotional disorder.

In older patients, the classic symptoms of sadness and withdrawal are frequently replaced with irritability or apathy.

The person that wanted to commit suicide let their feelings out and actually had somebody there to listen so it too the thought of suicide away.
