not really personally, but there was someone at our college that did, teachers and their family tried to keep it hidden, but word got around real fast, still was incredibly sad to hear about
i could tell my tutor particularly was affected by it and college generally started to make more of an effort towards students with mh issues, which is a positive, but sad it took a student to kill themselves for them to take action

thats sad that it had to come to that before the college showed any sort of support

A friend.He did it on the same day and same way his father had.It destroyed the survivors,just as it had destroyed him.

Two cousins.For one of them,the first attempt was a failure but the second time wasn't.His son followed in his footsteps and did the same years later.

Other relatives committed suicide also.It has left the legacy that when things get tough,give in and give up,which is sad.

my son, 20 years old almost 20 years ago and I am still destroyed, always will be.

another young man in my son's class
a co-worker of my son
a customer of a place I worked
a young man who was an acquaintance

and I know I am forgetting some.

Everyone close to you will live your tragic death every single day. Things they once enjoyed with you, they will no longer do and will find them unbearable. It shatters the heart and rips apart the soul. If you are able to see closely, there will always be a haunted sorrow in their eyes. It does not get easier. We just sort of get used to it....the new horrid reality.

A junior girl in my college committed suicide about 4 years back. I don’t know the exact reasons but apparently she had a breakup and was pregnant too.

A friend from college had committed suicide after he broke up with his girlfriend. After the breakup became an alcoholic and one day decided to kill himself.
