Assisted suicide is the process by which an individual, who may otherwise be incapable, is provided with the means (drugs or equipment) to commit suicide. It differs from euthanasia in that, in assisted suicide, the individual performs the critical action, whereas, in euthanasia, another person does it.

Assisted suicide is illegal in many legal jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom (where a bill to legalise it was voted down in 2007), but in others, eg, Belgium, Netherlands, Oregon and Switzerland, it is permitted.
