Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors

Many of us have had moments when we just don’t want to go on living. Sometimes those thoughts go further and people start thinking seriously about ending their lives. If you or someone you know is at that point of hopelessness, you must reach out for help now. You’re not alone and there is help! There are ways to feel better.

Did you know that most people who are suicidal don’t really want to die? They just can’t find a way to end their pain. While being bullied can cause depression, fear and loneliness, almost all people who die by suicide are suffering from a mental health condition such as depression, even though they may not know it.  Other emotional problems — such as bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, or eating disorders — can lead to thoughts of suicide. Knowing the cause of these symptoms and getting treatment for these conditions can help reduce those feelings of hopeless and help us to find ways to deal with the pain.

Sometimes people who take their lives have given warnings of their intentions to family and friends. Most suicidal people have a part of them that wants to live. Another part feels they can’t get rid of those awful feelings that are making them feel so bad.

No matter how bad it seems, there is hope because nothing is as bad as taking your life. Conditions like depression are treatable and, together, we can prevent suicides.

 

Learn the warning signs of suicide and how to prevent it.
