As much as we hate to admit it, suicide is a regular occurrence in our society, and oftentimes it's hard to even know what to do about it.
Studies show that nearly 90% of people with suicidal thoughts suffer from some form of mental illness, be it as treatable as anxiety or clinical depression, or something more serious such as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder or even post-traumatic stress disorder.
While not all of them end up acting on it, it's an unfortunate phenomenon that will only continue as long as we don't offer up aid to those who are suffering.
Science and medicine have fortunately come a long way in treating conditions like this, and there are plenty of both medical and psychological solutions to these conditions, such as taking medication or going to counseling.
Unfortunately, it can often be difficult for people suffering from these conditions to seek help, as they may either feel like they don't deserve it, or it may be too expensive for them to afford, or they might not even truly realize that what they're feeling isn't normal.
It's times like this that people suffering can often use a helping hand, and in the case of one man from Australia, things had really reached a critical point: he was literally advertising for someone to kill him.
