We updated a plugin and it did not go well with the site. Sorry it took us a day to get things back online.
We try and make this super easy for you. Come here to share your suicide story.
Do not come here to talk methods.
Do not come here to talk about partners.
Do not come here to spout hate or bully others.
That’s the short version. If this is your first time with us, please read the longer version.
Understand that this site is not for everyone. If you’re looking for a place to talk about these kinds of topics (methods, partners, hate), Google it. You can find other communities that will let you do that. We’re not one of them.
Please keep this in mind every single time you comment or reply to another human being on this site. There is a thinking, feeling person on the other end of the screen. They hurt just like you do.
Thanks for listening…
And remember — please report posts where either the post or someone in the comments in the post is violating the rules. We will take care of such reports as quickly as we can…
We need to move the site to a new server and an attempt to do that yesterday did not work out well due to a technical issue… so we’re going to try again this weekend. Our apologize for the downtime last night.
I’d love to hear some real life experiences from folks who’ve called suicide hotlines…
How do they start off the conversation?
How do they continue it or keep you engaged (if they do)?
Have you ever called for a friend, and if so, what was that like?
This is mainly to get a quick sample of how people perceive them and whether they are seen as helpful, or not of much help….
Thanks for anything you may want to share.
The Suicide Project is a neutral place to discuss your suicidal feelings, thoughts, and stories. We are “anti-suicide” insomuch as we don’t allow posting for suicide partners or specific suicide methods (so yeah, don’t do that). But that’s as far as things go in terms of that.
We prefer you come here to share your story about suicide — that’s what this site is about. Not to share your random observations on your life, the universe, etc. But we also understand sometimes those two things have to go hand in hand (and we allow for that).
It’s a dumb argument to get into, so don’t. Who cares what we are.
What matters is what you’re going to do with your life, your feelings, and whatever support you can find.
Gosh folks, we only have like 2 rules here. One is to not post for suicide partners. The other is to not talk about suicide methods. And yet, everyday, we remove posts that talk about methods.
This is not a place to come to learn how to commit suicide successfully. Google that and you’ll find websites for that — we are not that place.
Please, respect our 2 blessedly simple rules. It’s really not that hard. Thanks.
If your post isn’t about a suicide story — the purpose of the website — it may be deleted or removed. It’s that simple. This isn’t the place for manifestos or to argue the merits of one form of government or society over another.
Also, just a reminder — don’t post here for specific suicide methods. Go elsewhere if you want to learn how to do it, because this is not a place to discuss suicide methods. Sorry.
Use this category when you post your story if it’s related to your survival of a suicidal attempt (or someone you know’s survival).
Use this category when you post your story if it’s related to a story of loss due to suicide by someone you know, an acquaintence, friend or family member.
Use this category when you post your story if it’s related to the effects of somebody’s suicide on their family or friends.
Welcome to the suicide project. This site is a safe place where you may post about your experiences or your experiences with a family member or a friend who dealt with suicide (either successfully or unsuccessfully).
There is no judgment here and all stories related to suicide are accepted.
To submit your story, simply sign up for a free user account and then choose to Write a new entry. Also choose an appropriate category for the entry before publishing it.
If you are actively suicidal, this is probably not the place for you. Choose the suicidal resources link from the right or call a local suicide hotline immediately for assistance.
