What is suicide?

Suicide stems from the Latin word “suicidium” which means to kill oneself. It is the act of causing your own death. Suicide is often attributed to mental disorders such as bipolar disorder, depression,  borderline personality disorder, alcoholism and drugs. Stress factors also cause a part in the act of suicide.
