I tend to disagree, for the following reason.
If you have suicidal tendencies, then most likely you have already been upset, depressed, unhappy, troubled etc etc for an extended period of time. In such a state, your mind is probably quite muddled and you are not able to think clearly.
As such, when you decide to kill yourself, the decision is unlikely to have been made on logical and sensible grounds.
