When is suicide ok?

I really need advice on anyone dealing with suicide or has contemplated it. Aside from health issues or mental illness, what other reasons are there for suicide?

I'm not sure if a prayer circle is the proper place for this topic. But I didn't know where else to put it. I just want some feed-back on what everyone thinks about suicide, and whether it's a choice that needs to be made sometime during one's lifetime. Some people might not even consider such a thing. But for others the choice is not such a difficult one. For me it's not a tough choice either. And that really scares me. But I guess you have to be in someone else's shoes to really understand what they are going through. Everytime I hear about someone committing suicide, I often wonder what kind of turmoil were they going through to make such a drastic decision. And then I say to myself, "God bless them". And hope that I don't go through the same thing.
