Very sad news. I pray for his kids not to end up in depression because of this tragedy. It can easily start a vicious circle.

My thoughts and prayers to everyone who loved him or touched by his death.

I know this all to well I'm afraid, as I have been in the grips of severe depression several times in my life, so I can only say......poor man.....poor poor man :´( No human should suffer in that excruciating way that is deep depression.

I of course also feel very sorry for the family. They are just as much a victim of his illness. As with other illnesses, depression effects not only the depressed person.

The Prime Minister also offered her condolences: "I want to express my deepest sympathy with Ari Behn's family and bereaved in connection with his tragic death. My thoughts go out to all who loved him."

I’ve dealt with (attempted) suicide up close. Miraculous medical attention saved his life. We were all so angry when we learned about the attempt. But now we know that he just couldn’t think of anything else to do, couldn’t see any way forward... He has gone on to live a wonderfully successful and happy life. We are so thankful.

I was one of those people (despite a few people in my family suffering from mental health issues) that thought of suicide as a selfish act; however, earlier this year I saw a comment - and I deeply regret that I have never been able to find the exact words since - that, if someone died from cancer, you wouldn't be blaming them, how is suicide any different??

So sorry to hear that Ari has died and thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.

Lets hope the media allows the family to grieve during this terribly sad time.

Depression is sometimes genetic, like diabetes. My worry is that instead of realizing this and taking immediate steps like intense therapy and counseling, ML will turn the children over to her quack boyfriend for some of his specialized "spirit healing".

I really hope the king and queen and Prince Haakon will put their collective feet down and intervene where those girls are concerned.

VG TV seems totally lost with this unexpected sad news. I believe most of them are on holidays for Christmas day. I saw the norvegiens started bringing small candles...

What a cruel and pointless way to put things - you don´t know what you are talking about! Shame on you....

Be glad that you obviously have no idea how depression works.
Depression has many faces, but the idea that the world would be better without you is just another one that the ill brain cannot shake off.
Or, like in my case, it's not that you want to die, it's that a monster sits in your brain and tries to kill you. I did not want to end my life for one second, but I had to avoid bridges and busy streets, because I couldn't trust my own brain. That was unbelievable scary. It's a cruel illness, a difficult, dangerous one.


Have a heart.

I sincerely hope that he doesn't try to be their 'replacement father' and/or do other damage to those vulnerable girls.

Better read Osipi's other messages first before you make statements about things that you don't know anything about - such as Osipi's life story [which, obviously, I don't know either but read the other messages].

I understand it might hit hard and/or close to home to many but don't assume others don't know what they are talking about just because they have a different point of view.

Osipi made a cruel comment. I reacted to that. Fini.

I just heard it on the radio news. How terribly sad, especially for his three daughters.
