    Suicide is the most dramatic and acknowledged form of self-destructive behavior and is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Death, as the end result of an individual's conscious or unconscious desire to terminate life, is possible through many avenues, both violent and nonviolent, that currently do not fall under the classification of suicide. Suicide rates throughout the world represent only a segment of the total number of self-initiated deaths, either self-executed or brought upon through the help of others.
