What are the differences between egoistic, altruistic and anomic suicide? Look up three famous people who have committed suicide and the reasons they did this (either what you find about them or what you think the reason was). Which type of suicide did each commit? Do you know anyone who has committed suicide? How did this affect their family? How did this affect you? If you don't know anyone, imagine how you might feel. Can you think of something we can do to help prevent suicides, particularly for young people?
