Kids with cancer is one of the worst things ever. The people who have to deal with that must have high suicide rates.

Wow, that's so weird. I was going to say it's one of the best things ever. That's one thing I just love about Voat - it brings people together.

It depends on how they manage it, most have therapists to help cope. Heck, around here, a psychologist is obligated by law to periodically consult another psychologist in order to vent.

Just what makes you believe that? You obviously don't know a whole lot a bout suicide. First of all 77% of all suicides are male. Most suicides (I don't have the exact number ) are either white, native American or Asian. Suicide is not common among blacks and Hispanics. Most males use a fire arm in committing suicide. Most females use poison.

NOW THIS IS MY OPINION, but I think that most female suicide (females attempt suicide at a much higher rate than males but are not successful in that attempt) is actually a cry for help. They deliberately use a substance in insufficient amounts or that is slow to act (poison) in order to be found and saved. This now also gives them a higher pity quotient thus a notch up in the victim Olympics.

That seems unlikely to me. Why would you expect high suicide rates?

Seeing children die slowly and horribly while you stand powerless would eat at me
