If a person is determined to kill themselves, there's really not a damn thing anyone can do to stop it, short of putting them under guard 24/7, with no privacy at all. Do I think that someone who unsuccessfully attempts to take their own life should be forced into treatment? Yes, I do. I see no reason to give up on someone because they happen to be in a bad place mentally/emotionally. With treatment, most can be helped. Circumstances can change, and with that, one's outlook on life can improve or even reverse completely. More difficult for me is the issue of assisted suicide for those that modern medicine can't help. There's no denying the potential for abuse in such a case. A person may feel guilty because they perceive themselves as being a "burden" on their loved ones, and feel pressured to end their lives when they don't really want to. If I knew someone who was planning to take their life, I would do everything in my power to prevent it.
