Suicide is when a person chooses to kill himself or herself. When someone kills himself, people say that he has "committed suicide". When a person thinks about killing themselves, the person is said to be suicidal.

There are many reasons why a person might think about committing suicide. Most people who are suicidal have some type of mental condition or illness. They may have a chronic condition, which means it has been going on for a long time. But it may be an acute condition – which means the first symptoms of mental illness happened rather quickly.
Depression is the mental illness that most often causes a person to have suicidal thoughts. Depression may also be a symptom of other mental or medical disorders.
