In almost every case suicide is caused by pain, a certain kind of pain—psychological pain, or “psychache”… Suicidal death, in other words, is an escape from pain… Pain is nature’s great signal. Pain warns us; pain both mobilizes us and saps our strength; pain, by its very nature, makes us want to stop it or escape from it… Psychache is the hurt, anguish or ache that takes hold in the mind. It is intrinsically psychological, the pain of excessively felt shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, loneliness, angst, and dread of growing old or of dying badly. When psychache occurs, its introspective reality is undeniable. Suicide happens when the psychache is deemed unbearable and death is actively sought to stop the unceasing flow of painful consciousness. Suicide is a tragic drama in the mind (Schneidman, 1997, pp 23, 29)
