This article is written by a counsellor who often works in schools after a suicide. The most common question he is asked is why people kill themselves. He has devised a method to help people understand: he asks the group to give their reasons for living, & then he erases or leaves the reasons barely visible to illustrate the loss & hopelessness suicidal people feel.
