I think those who are/were truly hopeless/suicidal are already dead, but those who still alive still have a HOPE, which keeps them alive. I agree that it is not possible to save all suicidal people but maybe some of them still have a chance?
The world that they experience is not acceptable for them and they proved not to be able to fit or adjust. So there are only two ways to go: to die or to change the world. Moving to a different world geographically may be a good solution.
Eventually it is all about breaking patterns. Somehow those people developed very unhealthy patterns and their present environment will continue “feed” these patterns. I don’t believe it is possible to move slowly, step-by-step to a new pattern, at least it is extremely difficult to do (otherwise we all would be enlightened now) But I believe in drastic change, in “jump into 100% unknown and uncertain” when you realize that you are in a free fall and there is no way back. In this case person gets a new mental energy to move on. I am telling this because I did those “jumps” myself, something that other people thought was absolutely crazy and I succeeded and grew immensely. I don’t say that it is easy to do, to break your old patterns is equal to killing yourself mentally, to destroy everything that made sense to you. It is very painful but it is worth it!
