Most Internet Sites Oppose Suicide, Some Promote It

One hopes that even those that promote it advocate trying treatment. The overwhelming majority of pain patients can be managed. Once relieved, most want to continue their usual routines. Among the most distressing forms of pain is severe, unresponsive depression. All such patients should receive some neuroleptic tranquilizer, to at least slow down impulsivity.

From a defense point of view, e-discovery should include browsing of such suicide promoting sites prior to the suicide. They may be a strong factor in contagious suicide in people with a fairly low risk of it, as a kind of fad.
