This is wistful thinking. I've had multiple people I know commit suicide. Two of them family, and we knew they were sick. And had been helping them every step of the way. Going out of our way to remind them how much they meant to us. In the end, if the person wants to end it, they will. Sometimes the mental illness just gets a hold of them and doesn't let go. It might be that nothing you could have said or did would have mattered. Don't blame yourself.
You're kidding yourself OP. My best friend took her own life this month and we did everything we could to support her, telling her she was a wonderful person and a great mother.
She didn't want to believe us and we couldn't save her.
