Does someone attempt suicide?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more where someone attempts suicide.
There are many pieces of media that include suicide attempts, even if the character in question does not die. A piece of media with this would not fall under the "Does a character die by suicide?" category, so there would be no warning of there being an attempt shown or implied. Even if a character doesn't die, seeing an attempt can be just as triggering and harmful as if the character had.

M3gan stages someone’s death to look like a suicide and explains this is what she is doing. She forces his hand onto the weapon, presumably to leave fingerprints. The man is resisting the entire time

Alot of No’s for this but Peter does jump off of a spaceship from a window - He is okay and has a plan but it feels very suicide-y for a second

Not really an "attempt" but in the final episode, Ranboo calls out to the audience to let him die, so he's showing suicidal ideation due to the situation.

Technically no (spoilers ahead), but there is a scene where someone is hanging by a noose. Not by their own will, but still freaked me out a bit.

S3 E7: A man has tried to kill himself - due to his family having been killed in a fire - just before the episode starts, and we're told that it was his third attempt. He's been failing because a supernatural entity won't let him die. Soon after, we see him jump into a huge pot of boiling water; again, it doesn't kill him, but it leaves him badly burned. Later on, another man points a gun at his own temple and pulls the trigger - because his son and wife have been murdered - but the gun doesn't fire.

Wednesday doesn’t jump out of the way of a falling gargoyle so while not directly suicide she does nothing to stop it, instead someone else pushes her out of the way.

(No specific spoilers) There are mentions of a “suicide” and method, and a body, BUT it is quickly revealed not to be a suicide. So no actual suicide, but there are mentions.

Clarification for another comment - I believe Niffty was jumping off the building to join the others in a fight, not to unalive herself. But there are plenty of background characters that act violently toward themselves in the same episode when Zestial and Alastor are speaking to each other outside (it has something to do with their status as overlords I think?)
