← Religion as "comfort" to people in distress: fact or myth?

If someone is at a stage where they feel that they have no options but to commit suicide they should not be made to feel guilty or made to fear any repercussions but helped to see that there are plenty of other options. This whole view of punishment for making a choice is not only ridiculous but very immoral in my eyes. If that person is talking to someone else then they are obviously reaching out for help and any decent person should do exactly that help them feel better about themselves and the situation they are in.

Also to give them options so that they can help themselves get out of the bad situation and create a better life for themselve
