There are conditions that will.

Depression can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. This imbalance and the associated depression can push a person to feel suicide is the only way to stop the hurting.

Then diseases like syphilis can turn the brain to swiss cheese. In the process of destroying random parts of the brain inhibition centers can fall prey and die. When that happens it is like being perpetually drunk. A person is prone to say and do things they would normally be able to control through the inhibition process. Killing another human is one thing we are all capable of if something happens to reduce our inhibitions.Health Question & Answer

No. Everyone has the potential to harbor thoughts of suicide or homicid as much as they have the potential to raise a loving family or love another human being deeply. Mental illness is a byproduct of being constantly abused or misunderstood by society at large. I dont think it helps anyone to separate those that have shown the capacity for violence like that and just say THEY are the problem or and not look at the way our world is structured. There will always be some group of people that are left out of the mainstream and resort to desperate behavior unless we try to make the whole planet a more loving, nurturing place for everyone.Health Question & Answer

Depression, Bipolar, Skitzofrenier.

Suicide.? I'm sure there are plenty of diseases, cancer included, that would leave a person in so much pain that they would consider it. There was a story a few weeks ago about the guy who went into a church and shot the pastor then killed himself. They said he got lymes disease before and that might have affected his brain. I have a friend who got lymes as a teenager, and to tell the truth, he got stranger since then, like a mid-life crisis at age 25. He's not shooting anybody, but that goes to show....lymes is nothing to laugh about, it will screw you up mentally.Health Question & Answer

Any mental disease that has a psychotic component to it would cause someone to be homicidal or suicidal. Bi-Polar, Schizophrenia and Borderline Personality Disorder or psychopathy. Psychosis is caused by a disease of the brain and causes one's mind to more or less leave reality and see, feel, or hear things that aren't real. There are many safe anti-psychotic medications that can prevent psychosis. But a true psychopath is someone whom there is no medication to help as they do not have a conscience and will do anything that is their desire no matter whom it hurts. They are killers also.Health Question & Answer
