    If you keep up with the community of the internet, you would have saw that popular gamer Etika has passed away by committing suicide by jumping off the Manhattan BridgeThis man was someone I looked up to and was someone I enjoyed watching. Life is too short to say and I just wanted to say that we all care and love you in this server. I know most of you won't care, but this deals with the serious issue of mental health

    If you ever are struggling with mental health, contact a head mod on DART to talk to them about your struggles. If you can not talk to them, talk to a Discord Mod. Suicide is not an option. Call the Hotlines whenever you can. People care for you. It just goes to show that you can never tell a book by its cover. It is a just really sad and disheartening that this happened to someone, and proof that depression can affect the happiest of people

    Please go and donate to suicide prevention treaties. You are all loved by us, despite our debates. We are a community. You are valued here 

    -SupaDudz (sorry for the ping, but this is a serious issue)

    I think it is worth noting that the therepeutic method of The Orthodox Church is an effective cure for depression.

    While in some of my saddest times, my religion has helped through my dark points, we have to face reality. This isn't the case for all people. It is sad our religion can't provide us the same benefits for all, but it is a reality

    I am a realest to an extent, and religion does not help all of us

    A patient who does not follow the doctors orders can not expect to get well.

    The reality is that the church has within its experience the cure for depression. 

    If you are not reading the writings of the church throughout history on these things, you are not really taking advantage of what has been handed down to you. 

    The therepeutic method of the church certainly cures depression.

    Could the “About DART” thread, as well as the “Introduce Yourself” thread, have links to helplines for suicide, depression/anxiety, PTSD, and a general mental health thing? Could be useful.

    Thank you for the condolences. I am fine, but it was just sad to see one of my favorite YouTubers kill himself. This is just an awareness and made me realize the true effects of depression

    This is not about the site. This is general info after a tragic event happened to someone in the internet community

    That's something I can add. While users should always feel free to talk to mods about problems they're having, we are not certified to provide any kind of counseling or mental health care, and so having those links would be useful.

    Isn't that like assuming the reason people join DA is that they are depressed or suicidal?
      
    'Welcome! You don't have to be mad to post here... but you probably are, so here's a link to the samaritans.'

    It would probably save more lives if DA promoted non-smoking and moderate drinking - but is that what internet forums/debate sites are for?

    Yeah, that makes me very sad.  I didn't know him well but I did a couple debates against him and mafia games, of course.  I remember once we were scum together and he hated that- he always struck me as polite and modest even in situations where those qualities made him less competitive.

    The link probably is not going to be in the introduce yourself thread, but I will find somewhere to put it.

    Lannan never once got angry with anyone. He was just too calm for that. He was always nice and polite.
