Why did i wake up suicidal?


Q: I don't know if this is the right website to email, but i woke up in the middle of the night about two years ago, and i wanted to kill myself. I didnt know why, I was always the happiest kid before that. It literally just struck me over night. There had been nothing going wrong at that time in my life, and i would like to know how something like this could have happened to me. I am in college currently and have been struggling a lot lately with my depression. Please let me know if you have any ideas of how this might have happened.
