Suicide Club - November 11th 2012, 02:47 AM

I was actually thinking of trying to either make or join an online suicide club, just a place where people can openly talk about suicide and the choice to end their lives. Personally it would just be nice to have someone to talk to about my own suicidal thoughts and actions... And it also would be nice because I live in the middle of nowhere with no acess to ogre people besides the Internet... This might sound like a stupid idea but, really, it sounds like a good idea to me.

While I can see where you are coming from, I personally think this is a bad idea - and that it would be far more beneficial to see a professional to talk about your thoughts and problems. A much better way to approach this idea would be to try and join a community where you can talk to survivors of suicide and those who are recovering. I am sorry I can't really offer much here, but I think your idea would compound problems (although I may be wrong), I am just saying a better way to deal with your depression and thoughts would be to speak about it (as you intend) but also to find ways of coping and feeling better - a support group!

Re: Suicide Club - November 11th 2012, 03:38 AM

Speaking as someone who was a member of a "suicide club" at one point, they are a really bad idea. You're already suicidal and you're seeking out people to talk to about it. However, those people are also suicidal, and you are in an unregulated, unstructured impersonal environment where the only thing you have in common is your desire to commit suicide. No one there is in a healthy place to help keep it truly balanced and supportive. Engaging in such a group only worsens suicidal ideation because it keeps you constantly triggered and thinking about suicide. In my experience I have never met anyone who has benefitted from it. A lot of people who join those groups do end up committing suicide, sometimes at the encouragement of other group members.

I suggest seeking professional help about these urges, since they will be able to help you better than anyone. If you must connect with people online, connect with those on an environment like Teenhelp, where people can listen to you and talk with you about your issues AND support you and encourage you in getting help.

For a little show
In the hazy milk of twilight
No one had to know
The moon asked the crow...
