About the Suicide Project – READ THIS FIRST

The Suicide Project is a website devoted to allowing people to share their stories of desperation and depression… and ultimately of hope. We hope that by allowing people to share their stories of despair with one another, they can find a reason to live, a reason to survive another minute. Another hour. Another day.

This is not a place to share suicide methods.

This is not a place to find a suicide partner.

This is not a place to preach the gospel.

This is not a place to post random stuff on random topics.

This is not a place to spout hate. Or to create drama with other members. Or to login with multiple accounts pretending to be different people.

This is not a place to post an ad — for anything (no matter how much you think it fits).

Please do not hog our shared space here — including our homepage — by posting a bunch of your own posts all at once or in a row. One post, per person, per day, should be more than enough to allow for your own self-expression. More than that, and you may find some deleted.

(If you find someone doing any of the above, please use the “Report post or comments” link available on any post.)

This is not a place to expect that you will find someone who is going to intervene in your real life about the things you post here. No one will.

What this is is a safe place to share your story with others. Not to make desperate, last minute pleas, or to beg someone to help you do it. No one will.

This is, simply, a place to share your suicide story. And hopefully find hope for your future after doing so.

Please Note: Everything you post here is PUBLIC and indexed by search engines like Google. Please post accordingly. DO NOT POST YOUR REAL NAME and we strongly advise against sharing an email address that you use in your daily life (primarily because spam-bots will pick up your email address and you will be spammed).

An occasional link in the comments to a suicide support chat room is allowed, but no specific posts promoting other suicide chat rooms or forums are allowed. This isn’t a place to advertise your own project, community, or site.

PS – If you do decide to try and share suicide methods, request a suicide partner, post random stuff on random topics unrelated to suicide or depression, post an ad or other spam, preach the gospel, or spout hate, don’t be surprised if you find your posts and your account deleted, without notice. We have zero tolerance for people who come here for the wrong reasons, or are seeking to stir things up.

If you want to help others here, reach out honestly with your heart and soul, and do your best.

PPS – Please do not bother writing us to let us know how evil or bad or stupid our website is. We know already, thanks.

PPPS – If you are actively suicidal, we recommend that you read this first or pick up the phone and reach out to someone. If you feel you can’t reach out to someone in your life, consider calling the prevention hotline at 800-273-TALK.
