    Abstract

    Why would an individual want to kill himself or herself? This continues to be a difficult question to understand, not to mention answer. Why not seek help when support and care is available? Why? Is the question the bereaved of those who take their lives by suicide constantly ask. Why has the value of life completely lost its appeal for a small number of people who appear to be healthy, when the opportunity is there to change course, to enjoy life to the full and to look into the extraordinary abyss of how little we know? There are people around us who may be perceived as having many reasons to kill themselves and yet do everything in the power to live, and there are those who may appear to have every reason for living and yet kill themselves. Such is the enigma of suicide
