A new theory of suicide

This morning I read this:

In essence, Joiner proposed that people who kill themselves must
meet two sets of conditions on top of feeling depressed and hopeless.
First, they must have a serious desire to die…Second, and most important, people who succeed in killing themselves must be capable of doing the deed.

Maybe it’s the fault of the press coverage (remember when Modigliani won the Nobel Prize?…”people save for their old age”) but then I thought of this.
