Because they make you feel better.

At the height of a clinical depression a person is literally too depressed to commit suicide most of the time, they usually lack sufficient energy or will to do it and remain in bed for hours instead.. When started on antidepressants the patient begins to feel a bit better but still quite depressed (antidepressants take awhile to fully kick in) during this period of time it is more likely that a person will have the energy and will to commit or seriously consider suicide.

Generally I would say that teens go through a lot. So life can feel hard and unfair at times. So some suicidal thoughts might be seen as ok. If it becomes suicidal ideation (where thoughts of suicide become frequent and strong) then attention should be sought from a pysch. Personally if you are getting suicidal thoughts I would suggest you speak to a counsellor or someone like a teacher and discuss what is behind them...
