1. I heard a story on Thom Hartmann's Show

That said Israel had a lot of suicides amongst its young new soldiers in training. They stopped allowing the soldiers to take home their guns over weekends, and suicides dropped 40%. Committing suicide can frequently be tied to having, in the moment, a weapon as lethal as a gun. If there is no available gun, they will usually get over what is hurting them or get help.
