    Hi, my names Jh.
    I don't really play here anymore or play any games anymore. However, I realise that this is a topic that affects so many people and I've been through so much recently with a man very close to my heart taking their life. So I thought I would share this here as, even though it can be toxic, this is a big and close community.

    Suicide and depression affects so many people. And pretty much everything I talk about on this post will be from personal experience. I know what it feels like, the feeling of complete emptiness and the feeling of how you want to go talk to someone about it but you feel as if you can't and it feels so lonely, as if you have literally no one. I want you (person reading this) specifically, whoever you are, to know that you are not alone, you have family and friends and people you can contact. I am almost certain that this affects everyone at some point. And I know personally that people can be good at hiding it, so if someone seems fine, just check up on them. Sometimes all someone needs is someone to go up to them and say "Hey, are you okay?" and to actually mean it. Speaking of, if anyone on this thread needs someone to talk to and they don't feel like they can talk to someone that they know, I will be available through PM and I will also leave contacts below that you can rely on.

    Whoever you are, if you feel low, no matter what you've been through, whether it's a lot or a little, get help and talk to someone.

    This is a really important topic to me so no hate please.

    And this is why I was hesitant to say anything. I assume this user is young so maybe you’ll understand when you grow up

    The single biggest killer of men under 45 is suicide. In 2016, there were 5668 recorded in Great Britain. Of these, 75% were male. 41% of males who've contemplated suicide felt like they could not talk about their feelings.

    Just because this is a Minecraft forums does not mean you need to be such an ass. If you don't have anything nice to say then just keep it to yourself. Especially when the poster is obviously trying to make a serious thread.

    The issue is people dont reach out if they believe there is no hope. you dont say anything or do anything to give anyone any clue as to what your planning on doing. But if you have hope, even if you dont believe it. you start giving little hints or alluding toward the fact that you need help. Ive had a bestfriend and a cousin both be admitted to mental health facilities after theyre close friends or relatives noticed something to tip them off to their true intentions.

    Thought we don't see this often enough the fact your replying to this and acknowledging this is very important and brings a new perspective to this because no matter what at the end of the day this is a serious conversation in a not so serious place where people tell others to kill themselves every day. When they really dont know what that person is going throught or what theyre actually feeling, they could be depressed. I was, for 3 years. Depression doesnt = suicide, for 3 years I was depressed. Never clinically diagnosed or went to a mental health facility because I was so good at hiding it. But I never wanted to kill myself, I just wanted things to become better

    Honestly, think about it this way. All of these people leaving negative comments and calling you out for writing this arent even worth it. Creating this post means that there is a chance that someone depressed will read this. Because of making this, you might have saved someone's life. I think that having people say those mean things to you in exchange for the chance to save someones life is worth it. Props to you man

    Haha, I’m pretty sure you’re the one who needs to grow up and learn to be considerate to other people. Same goes to everyone who is trashing this thread. You say it’s memey? Or you shouldn’t post it on a Minecraft forums? Well you might have noticed this is off-topic discussion, so there’s no reason this post shouldn’t be here. If you really want to talk trash about a topic that is serious, talk to the wall.
