Well done to the plod. We have had too many of these stories with sad outcomes recently, we should acknowledge that they have done something really worthwhile today.

A mentally unstable person probably at the lowest point in their lives has beensaved from probable death and will now get the medical help he needs. I would be thankful for that rather than upset at being held up for a while. God forbid you moaners or any of your loved ones succumb to depression in future. Maybe then ud have more compassion for a fellow human being in crisis.

I doubt they would, there is to much stigma around mental health, for someone to try to take there own life they must be at the lowest point, mental health services are there to give support when needed, but unfortunately some people don't know how access it or are ashamed to do so because of ignorant people who come out with stupid comments.

Who is the selfish individual now eh?

Here is the compromise for you. We build a bridge / jumping platform in the middle if a field where we don't have to shut a motorway. All those that want attention can have it and those who want to end it all can do the same. Either way everyone is a winner.

As a part of the mental health profession it sickens me to read the negative, selfish comments people put. When there are people committing suicide on a weekly bases from young ages to the elderly because there isn't enough support about for them or they don't know how to or feel they can't access it because of I'll minded people who will tease for it. It's not good because it's not just society that is failing them but also the NHS.

Personally I think it's a great idea. Selfish people are often appearing on bridges and railways causing chaos these days.

Sometimes they even go through with it. Throwing yourself in front of a train or car is the most selfish way you can go, making someone else kill you and leaving them to deal with their own conscience afterwards.

As Buffy The Vampire Slayer once said, a cry for help is when you shout, "Help!"

It isn't halting traffic on a motorway for an hour (She didn't add that bit).

Please educate yourself on mental health and speak with someone who's been at that point, you'll find it has nothing to do with being selfish.

Someone making a mobile phone call while driving, then causing a crash and holding up your ambulance, that's selfish.

Why is it utterly ridiculous? I compared the two in reasonable context.

My nan helped pioneer experimental treatment of cancer for others to survive before her own slow fight to the end, high as a kite on morphine, it was painful to go through this with her for years as a teenager in my family home. My other grandparents both had alzheimer's, it was horrible to see them die slowly too.

I have a partner with long term mental health problems, she's been very close to ending her own life (for pain relief, not for attention) and in a serious world of hurt. I've never been so broken hearted for someone and supporting her is sometimes impossible, I'm very compassionate and understanding but even I find it difficult at times.

Mental health and other serious illnesses, although completely different are life degenerating. Becoming mentally ill isn't a choice.

Thankfully Cancer these days isn't immediately thought of as terminal, the survival rates are amazing and the treatments and research benefit greatly from public awareness.

I have close family experience of cancer and from the bottom of my heart, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, it broke me in to pieces. I do however, think you perhaps mis-understand my comparison or I didn't explain it well enough.

Killing yourself when ill is a choice, you make those actions. But wanting to kill yourself or taking yourself to that point, often that isn't a choice. I seriously wish I could explain this better but like many others I'm still blown apart from learning about mental health. It's hugely complicated and we need to know more.

My partner nearly killed herself twice this year (at home), the only reason she managed to stop herself was our beautiful two year old son, thoughts about him battled the alternative thoughts running round her brain at the time while we were round the corner at the playground. She wants to get better so much and we've fought very hard to get treatment and understanding, but those thoughts are still there and they're like web of confusion. Treatment of mental health problems is not as simple as many believe, even the NHS struggle with this. I still fear my partner will not come home one day.

You summarised this brilliantly. "people are now saying they have bipolar., dont really know the ins and outs"

Polite response, thank you.

Being ill and causing an accident, and through blinkered thoughts, most likely not realising the consequences to others while in a world of pain, that isn't "selfish".

Using a mobile phone and causing an accident through poor driving is "selfish".

Some of you are missing the point this person was obviously at there wits end and didn't know what else to do. Luckily he was talked down and will now be assessed and get the support he needs. I get the points about selfish etc but please just think how you would react if this was a family member or close friend. It's so easy to pass judgement to why they do it but maybe if they were supported more they wouldn't have to.
Some of you are missing the point this person was obviously at there wits end and didn't know what else to do. Luckily he was talked down and will now be assessed and get the support he needs. I get the points about selfish etc but please just think how you would react if this was a family member or close friend.

One day he tried to hang himself. Fortunately he didn't manage to succeed with his action.
But he did receive Severe head injuries.Because the cord he used was elasticated sad really.
