A suicide pact is a plan of two or more people to kill themselves. People who agree on such a plan may kill themselves together, or they may do so in a planned manner. When studying suicide, suicide pacts are an important concept. Suicide pacts have occurred through history.

Note that a suicide pact is different from mass suicide. In a mass suicide, many people commit suicide, for the same reason. This reason is often influenced by religious beliefs.
