That's a terrible idea. Suicidal ideation isn't usually constant and most people who unsuccessfully attempt suicide decide that they don't want to die. Many express an immediate sense that they'd made a serious mistake.

We don't want suicide to be an easy and socially acceptable thing to do for physically healthy people. It'd be a huge danger to the mentally ill.
