Answer is in the question perhaps? Are they looking at the 'How-To' or 'Reasons for' aspects of it, either that or take them out on a random day and just chat them up, get a feel, it all boils down to how well you know this person and if it's not that well.....find someone who does.

You would need a psychologist to assist in this.You might also talk to anyone who had the victim's ear and confidence. A purely psychological forensic analysis might not yield the insights a friend or associate might have.
If the person who died killed themselves did so by their own doing and had the intention to kill themselves.
Not ever. Suicide is like giving up. It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem; because no matter what situation you are in, it'll always get better. If you or a loved one is contemplating suicide, you need to get help. Go online for crisis chat rooms or get a therapist. No one should ever...

What is the fear of suicide? If you mean the fear of thinking that  a loved one might take his/her own life, that seems rather  self-evident. But, if you mean what fears accompany one's own  suicidal impulses... well, that's another matter.   Let's start with this. Suicide is usually an idea...

I'm guessing you're talking about yourself or someone you know here. If they cut themselves, and have attempted suicide twice, then yes, you should find help.

The despair and agony overcomes rational thoughts and social consideration.
Suicide cannot be controlled, the most we can do is try to prevent it. Taking your question as it is, if we wanted to control suicide, it would need to be legal with a permit. if people had to apply for a permit and have their suicide approved, then it would be considered "controlled".

I think this may be a case where what you're asking in this question is not what you mean. When you ask what to "say", I think you may mean, what happens to the survivors when a parent commits suicide. Would you be so kind as to re-ask this question a little more directly please?

It's okay to not know what to do sometimes. You're allowed to feel helpless and like life sucks. Sometimes it really does. You can't be faulted for that. Just hold on for a little while longer, life gets better. Remember that you are so much more than the sum of your failures and circumstances.
suicides never the answer =)Further to the above: Ther is an inbuilt desire in all of humanity to live. If you as you say "really want to die" then it's clear that you would benefit greatly from discussing all of this with a compassionate and expert listener such as your best friend, your doctor...

Tell someone who can help. You don't have to be suicidal to call a hotline. Many calls received by suicide prevention agencies are from family and friends of potential victims. Don't wait, you have questions, they have answers and the skills to get directly involved once they have all the facts.

It means to kill yourself. This is not recommended. Murderers sometimes commit suicide because they don't want to spend life in prison.
Any failed method really.If you want to attempt suicide to elicit a reaction from family and friends, find out what you want the outcome to be, and try to get that outcome through a productive means. You don't have to attempt suicide to be taken seriously.

Actually, no one really knows what the circumstances were of the first suicide, as it probably occurred in pre-recorded history. The earliest recorded account of a suicide that I could find was Aegeis of the 1230's bc. But it could have occurred much eirlier than that as well.

Actually it's surprisingly hard to do. Over the millions of years  humans have been evolving, a significant part of that development  has been systems that keep you from dying easily. One of those  systems is pain. And so, most methods HURT.    And, for the same reasons, most methods are...
The assumption raised by the question may or may not be correct.

Yes he does. Hamlet's famous "To be, or not to be" soliloquy is essentially his contemplation of suicide.It is possible to argue that Hamlet does not seriously contemplate suicide as an option for himself.

Music does not cause suicide. However, a person considering it might be listening to darker music, such as Avenged Sevenfold, because the story behind the song might be similar to their own life.

Yes, not only to the suicidee, but it also leaves the ones left behind; family, friends children; very emotional and upset because they feel that they have not done enough to help
Not sure. But wow, that's a hard way to go. Paracetamol or Acetaminophen (APAP), at high doses, causes liver damage. While this may be fatal in the long term, that would only happen after your acquired liver disease has run its course. Liver disease is always a hard, painful, vile way to go. If...
Despite the song title suggesting it is, it generally isn't. It all depends on how they go.
