How many reasons to die are too many? One reason to die is too many for me. But for those who believe in the idea of mental illness there’s no such concept as too many reasons to die because they believe suicidal feelings are caused by a brain malfunction. So the people who believe in the biomedical model believe that the most important thing is forcing suicidal individuals to live by any means necessary. But I believe the most important form of suicide prevention is the prevention of suicidal feelings because I believe that one reason to die is one too many. Of course I despise the existence of unbearable suffering and unbearably poor quality of life so obviously that’s my response.
