However, Suicide Wiki cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given article may recently have been changed, vandalized, or altered by someone, whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields, hence affecting the accuracy or precision of information on this wiki.
