Approximately 1 million people commit suicide each year. Suicide is an edgy endeavour to avoid enduring that has turned out to be horrendous. Blinded by sentiments of self-hatred, sadness, and disengagement, a self-destructive individual can’t perceive any method for discovering help with the exception of through death. In any case, regardless of their longing for the agony to stop, most self-destructive individuals are profoundly at odds about closure their own lives. They wish there was an option in contrast to suicide, yet they can’t see one. A self-destructive individual may not request help, but rather that doesn’t imply that assistance isn’t needed. Individuals who end their lives would prefer not to kick the bucket, they simply need to quit harming. Suicide anticipation begins with perceiving the notice signs and considering them important. On the off chance that you think a companion or relative is thinking about suicide, you may be reluctant to raise the subject. In any case, speaking straightforwardly about self-destructive musings and sentiments can spare an existence. Today in withlovemoni.com lets learn everything that we should know about a suicidal person.
Facts about a suicidal person which you should know
Indeed, even the most extremely discouraged individual has blended sentiments about death, faltering until the plain last minute between needing to live and needing to kick the bucket. Most self-destructive individuals don’t need passing; they need the torment to stop. The drive to end everything, anyway overwhelming, does not keep going forever.
Most self-destructive individuals are not maniacal or crazy. They should be vexed, despondency struck, discouraged or hopeless, however extraordinary misery and passionate torment are not really indications of dysfunctional behavior.
Investigations of suicide casualties have demonstrated that the greater part had looked for restorative help in a half-year preceding their passings.
Suicide Cautioning Signs Includes
Discussing suicide – Any discussion about suicide, biting the dust, or self-hurt, for example, “I wish I wasn’t conceived,” “On the off chance that I see you again…” and “I’d be in an ideal situation dead.”

Distraction with death – Unusual spotlight on death, passing on, or brutality. Composing lyrics or tales about death.
No desire for the future – Feelings of powerlessness, misery, and being caught (“There’s no chance to get out”). A conviction that things will never improve or change.
Self-hatred, self-loathing – Feelings of uselessness, blame, disgrace, and self-loathing. Having a feeling that a weight (“Everyone would be in an ideal situation without me”).
Getting issues altogether – Making out a will. Giving without end prized belonging. Making courses of action for relatives.
Saying farewell – Unusual or startling visits or calls to family and companions. Saying farewell to individuals as though they won’t be seen once more.
Pulling back from others – Withdrawing from loved ones. Expanding social confinement. Want to be disregarded.
Foolish conduct – Increased liquor or medication utilize careless driving, risky sex. Accepting superfluous dangers as though they have a “desire to die.”
A sudden feeling of calmness – A sudden feeling of calmness and satisfaction in the wake of being greatly discouraged can imply that the individual has settled on a choice to endeavor suicide.
Suicide Level Risk
Low – Some self-destructive musings. No suicide plan. Says he or she won’t endeavor suicide.
Direct – Suicidal musings. An ambiguous arrangement that isn’t extremely deadly. Says he or she won’t endeavor suicide.
High – Suicidal musings. A particular arrangement that is very deadly. Says he or she won’t endeavor suicide.
Extreme – Suicidal musings. A particular arrangement that is profoundly deadly. Says he or she will endeavor suicide.
In the event that a suicide endeavor appears to be unavoidable, call a nearby emergency focus, dial 911, or take the individual to a crisis room. Expel weapons, medications, blades, and other possibly deadly questions from the region yet don’t, under any conditions, leave alone a self-destructive individual.
Things You Can Do For a Suicidal Person
Get professional help. Do everything possible to get a self-destructive individual the assistance he or she needs. Call an emergency line for guidance and referrals. Urge the individual to see an emotional well-being proficient, help find a treatment office, or take them to a medical checkup.
Follow-up on treatment. In the event that the specialist endorses a solution, ensure your companion or adored one accepts it as coordinated. Know about conceivable symptoms and make certain to inform the doctor if the individual is by all accounts deteriorating. It frequently requires investment and determination to discover the pharmaceutical or treatment it’s hard to believe, but it’s true for a specific individual.
Be proactive. Those thinking about suicide frequently don’t trust they can benefit from outside intervention, so you may be more proactive at offering help. Saying, “Call me on the off chance that you require anything” is excessively dubious. Try not to sit tight for the individual to call you or even to restore your calls. Drop by, call once more, and welcome the individual out.
Support a positive way of life changes, for example, a sound eating routine, a lot of rest, and getting out in the sun or into nature for something like 30 minutes every day. Exercise is additionally critical as it discharges endorphins, eases the pressure, and advances enthusiastic prosperity.
Remember your awareness can save your beloved ones.
Stay Safe and Take care.
Vaibhav Mehta says
You say no to suicide but then sometimes you say you struggle to find inspiration to wake up alive and to want to live another day. I hope you get clarity in life and recover if you’re suffering. Do speak out if you need any help.
Great informative post. This is such an issue in the world today.
Phill Slater says
I would be classified as someone who has suicidal thoughts but with no active plan as to carry it out.
This is a powerful post, thanks.
Beth Elkassih says
This article is so important and I will share this link to as many people I can, especially since it is Mental Health Awareness Week. I too wrote a blog about a new phenomenon, known as ‘smile depression’. I would love it if you would also share with your readers. It is http://www.madeyousmileback.com/blog/i-just-want-to-be-happy
Much respect. Well done.
It is definitely important to speak on this topic. I will add that my cousin always spoke of suicide, but no one paid attention to her until last year that she actually did it. I was not close to her and since I truly struggle with depression I wish I had been closer. I have been able to manage my depression for years now and I have a strong handle over life. But, I do have some days that are tougher and I have learned to reprogram my mindset on those days. It has taken time to do this, but I am glad that I have. The meds suck! Thanks for sharing this post.
Very well expressed ..you have done a fine analysis of the reasons leading to suicide..it’s so alarming..in India itself one student commiylts suicide every one hour..
This has to be taken seriously at all levels .
God bless you
Lisa fucci says
My best friend committed suicide almost 20 years ago. It was so traumatic. And I wish everyone knew that they mean the world to someone and things can get better.
Thank you for sharing this honest and important information. So important to practice self-care and be open to reaching out for help.
Thank you for sharing this. It is a topic that doesn’t get discussed enough.
Marjie Mare says
Sometimes, so many feel helpless and don’t know there is help out there. It is very important to listen to the unspoken word and be there to our loved one who is silently suffering.
Nicole Anderson | Camping for Women says
This is such a massive subject with so many things to consider. Really good that you have included some potential signs to recognise a person in this situation and some suggested strategies to help them.
Enriqueta E Lemoine says
Thank you for taking the time to write about this subject. Suicide is not an easy subject. Paying attention to some little signs can help to save a life. Everybody deserves to live, be heard, be loved and happy.
This is helpful, however the signs for suicide may not be oral. We need to look for non-verbal signs as well.
Chloe @callmecoco.co says
Thank you for sharing, I think we should all be more aware of what to do for someone with suicidal thoughts
Carmen Adendorff says
I was at a suicidal point in my life a few times which people didn’t know of and I can only thank God for healing me as he was the only person I could speak to as I was afraid of what people might say if I reached out to but going through a phase like this is never easy. thank you for sharing this.
Salona Surjoo says
Hi I am so glad that you have written about this topic. There are probably so many people who feel this way and suffer in silence. And one day it is too late. I feel that the support of the public should increase instead of society just making people feel worse about themselves and their live. We really need to stand together.
Jennifer Dagi says
The high rate of suicide every year is really alarming! The most surprising of all is that people who look happy and rich take the suicide route.
When I found about Robin Williams and Kate Spade, I was shocked to the depths of my soul. They looked like they had everything but sadly, they weren’t very happy.
Thanks for raising the awareness to the public to this topic. My sister in law was suicided many years ago due to depression and it is really sad to bring up this topic again. I hope more people will read this post and be aware and help out to those who are in need.
I agree with all you have mentioned here. We need to be aware of the signs to save our loved ones.
It’s not easy to find the good words to
1- talk about this and 2 – talk to a person who wants to end its life.
Thank you for writting about it!
It was interesting and can help several people!
Thank you so much for sharing this. I have never been personally touched by suicide, but people in my area have. Everyone always says they never saw any problems. I think it’s important for us to always be on the lookout for any signs we might see.
Sarah Bailey says
This is a good post on the ways to help someone who is feeling like they can’t carry on. It it such a hard situation to be in and I think people need to realise, suicide is death from an illness, it is an illness killing people not their own hands.
Great post. We need to be aware so we can help.
Chad Kassis says
I can’t state enough how close to my heart this subject is, thank you so much for highlighting it and for all the insights. Bookmarking it for sure!
This is such a detailed article and will hopefully be helpful to anyone familiar with friends or relatives suffering from difficulties that could result in the state of mind to end their lives. Although I have never considered ending my life, I do understand ‘they need the torment to stop’ which I experienced in the worst period of my life after my Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosis.
Evelyn Hernandez says
Suicide is real and I wish people were more open to talking about it. Thank you for sharing awareness as it is good to know the signs so that we may help others.
In the modern world where everyone prefers to show off with the positive and superficial things there is no place for the honesty and real feelings. People don’t want to bother others with their “scary” thoughts and emotional discourage. Nevertheless I do believe that some people are born with self-destructive button in them.
Suicide has always been a taboo topic. I’m really glad you had the courage to enlighten us on this fragile subject. Thank you!
Melissa Bradbury says
This has been the best post that I have read for a long time. Focusing on and highlighting such a serious issue and also giving information on what to look for. Thank you for writing it, its fantastic.
Tara Pittman says
This is good info. I think being there for a person as they struggle is always a good thing.
Fran Jorgensen says
I find this post very confronting as I lost my 17 year ols cousin to suicide not long ago. I hope talking about it helps others to seek help and get out of this state before it’s too late.
Jennifer Prince says
These are such important things to be aware of. Sometimes those closest to the person are completely unaware of what is going on.
Nina Nichols says
Suicide is indeed prevalent nowadays and the topic that must be addressed to provide the proper mental health care to the people. It’s so sad when people can’t get the help that they need to they resort to just ending their lives. 🙁
Aiai Damigo says
i definitely say “NO TO SUICIDE”, nowadays seems like suicide is the problem’s answer. Taking your own life is not the answer! 🙁
The Tale of Mummyhood says
This is such a valuable post and one that everyone should read.
Scott Gombar says
I have a good friend who lost a son to suicide. Yesterday they held a Suicide Prevention Walk. I was unable to make it this year but I have participated in the past. It’s such an important topic that needs more attention and people involved.
Laura Dove says
There has been a real spate of suicides in our town over the last year and it never fails to shock me that so many people are being failed on so many levels.
Mental Health is indeed a very sensitive topic. People must be aware on what to do when their friends are facing depression. This is very informative. I’m sharing this with my other friends.
Wow! This was very…enlightening. I’ve always wondered how people even begin to consider suicide let alone have the mental strength to carry it out. Something needs to have snapped. They need to be so far gone,no help is possible…and that gives me very cold shivers. Mat we never encounter the level of hopelessness that pushes us to such an unspeakable act.
This is such an important topic that needs to be discussed!
This piece does a great job of high lighting the different stages and signs to watch for when identifying suicidal plans or thoughts of an individual.
Lili Mila says
Suicide is never the answer. I have been confronted on how to bring this topic up in my community as it has become rampant. We need to play close attention and be there for our loved ones.
Blair villanueva says
Not all are tough to handle their issues. That’s why they need someone to hold on to.
Self-hatred, self-loathing. This really stuck out to me. I suffer with these emotions sometimes. It’s always good to have a friend remind me of my good qualities and how they offset the bad
This is such an important topic that we rarely discuss openly. We are grateful that we have a supportive family and no one in our family has committed suicide.
Daphne' Adams says
Suicide is a topic that needs to be addressed. This post is very relevant is this time, and its extremely important to share the signs and how to help someone.
Suicide seems so commonplace now. We must all support mental health funding!
Important post. Always check in with your friends and family. You can always find a way. Please reach out
Karen Monica says
Suicide cases have reached an alarming rate. It is very sad to see soo many young people are facing depression and are ending their lives. As family and friends, we play a big part to reach out to one another and not just let the signs of suicidal fall on deaf ears until its too late.
1 million people per year? That’s so sad. I just wrote a post about normalizing mental health talk. something we need to do! Good for you for writing this.
Puneet Malik says
This information is the need of the hour.. In today’s age of stress & depression, awareness is the key
Elizabeth O says
There definitely needs to be more suicide awareness out there. It is so sad that people think there is no way back from their dark thoughts.
blair villanueva says
This is something that is been for many countries, and triggers anytime. If you know anyone close to you suffers on depression, all we can do is have an open mind and let them express.
Thank you so much for sharing such a post with suicide. This is a serious matter that everyone should really be aware of.
Nabanita Dhar says
It’s a scary thought isn’t it that you can’t quite predict who would commit suicide. Well, not if the person doesn’t give any indication about it. I feel sad about the person who commits suicide and also the people he leaves behind.
Indeed a great and informative post, suicide is a thing now many people as an option to end there suffering and frustration. Am bookmarking and sharing this great piece
Joan Cajic says
This is a very important and informative post. Suicide is no joke and what scares me it sometimes can’t be seen or you can just miss the signs and end up finding out too late. Thank you for this post.
Angelique Frylinck says
Loved this post ! My Stepdad committed suicide, and creating awareness is just so important, well done
Jennifer fashion help is very important. There is nothing you can do sometimes no matter how bad you want to… For another person in such a situation… but those trained to do so can help
Pati Robins says
it is so important to talk about it openly , and seek help whenever possible – our lives are too precocious yet so fragile
I like how you have included the suicide cautioning signs in your article. These are certainly signs to help people to be aware of people around us who has such behavior.
What a powerful post! We should raise much more awareness about suicide all over the world 🙁
Ola @ WanderWithOla says
This is such an interesting read. It’s kinda depressing to know more and more people, who don’t look like suicidal, decided to commit suicide. This is such an important topic to pay attention to. Thank you for sharing this.
Maartje van Sandwijk says
Such an important topic to talk about more! Thank you for sharing all of this!
Kristine Nicole Alessandra says
Such a nice and very informative post to read. Now, I am not aware of those signs that a suicidal persons have, thanks for sharing!
Such a sad topic. I had a bestie who committed suicide. No one saw it coming :-/
I have an uncle who did too. He was so fun-loving and happy. I was a kid (many, many years ago) and it still affects me if I think about it. He had three kids of his own too, who ended up being split up afterwards because he’d been a single (widower) dad. So horribly tragic and sad.
I think that sometimes is very hard to spot the signs of depression on someone, especially if they put on an appearance. There were big names that we were all shocked when we heard that they committed suicide, like Robin Williams for example. It’s important to ask our friends from time to time how are they.
Czjai Reyes-Ocampo says
This post is very timely, as suicide cases have been increasing through the years in countries around the world.
Thank you for talking about this, it’s not often brought up and yet so prevalent in our society.
This really hits home to me as i’ve lost a dear friend from suicide. We were just teenagers and i didn’t know the signs.i felt both sadness and guilt from it.until now i really wish i could’ve known.
Naza Holliman says
What a powerful message.
Yeah Lifestyle says
This is such an important and informative post, helping people to be aware of the signs. Sometimes those suffering hide it so well.
This topic is definitely one that needs to be addressed. So many people silently struggle, but don’t seek help.
Such an important topic. It reminds me that we should all check on each other, even those that seem strongest.
Pooja @ PeacefulBanyanTree says
This definitely needs to be taken on a serious note. There needs to be more awareness of suicidal behavior. It’s our responsibility as a friend, family member or loved one to support and facilitate person to get a professional help. It’s a great post to be shared around.
Geraline Batarra says
Suicide is now a big issue in our society nowadays and we really don’t know they reasons why they are doing this but thanks to you at least we do now have a knowledge about this matter, thanks for sharing!
I haven’t really contemplated suicide and I can’t imagine what others are feeling. Someone cares, and I hope if a person needs help, they find it. It just breaks my heart that anyone would choose to end their life.
Thanks for this informative post, it’s great to see that awereness is being spread
Peter Nyiri says
I believe that suicide could be prevented if people were actually paying attention to each other and treating each other like humans. Someone can collapse in the street and no one saying anything… It’s crazy.
Such an important topic, that so many people don’t want to talk about. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor and this is something I address with clients all the time. It is so important to have support if you are struggling with any of these thoughts
What Corinne Did says
It can be so hard to see the signs sometimes and it is so important to raise awareness and be able to spot when something is off. This post will really help!
Tonya Morris says
Suicide awareness and knowing the signs and symptoms is so important. It could save someone’s life!
Chaulet Benjamin says
Suicide is so complicated. And so difficult to understand from others. Switzerland is one of the high ranking countries in suicide rate. Nobody can explain it…
Ben – http://www.nutrition-newage.com
Christie Moeller says
Very powerful post. A informative read for anyone with loved ones who suffer from depression.
Charlene Allcott says
Some really helpful tips for supporting someone. It can be so hard to know what to do or say.
It’s great to spread awareness about suicide prevention because a lot of the times, helping someone feel heard and loved can save everyone a lot of heartache.
Wendy Polisi says
I have lost a few loved ones to suicide. It is a dark place where some of the victims suffer.
THANK YOU for this post. I lost my aunt to suicide it was so incredibly tragic. To think of how much pain she was in still makes me feel so lost even today. But I know she’s no longer suffering, and I’ve made it my mission to never overlook someone’s pleas for help in even the smallest way.
Amazing info. It is so hard to talk about suicide. It is hard and raw… wish everybody could read this so there would be less people thinking about it.
The current suicide rates are astounding. I think people really underestimate depression and how many people struggle with suicidal thoughts daily.
Such a hard topic to talk about. So glad you are giving so much information so we can relate to those with this feelings.
Very powerful and informative post. Suicide awareness is very important. Truth is most of us have thought of committing suicide at point of our lives.
Suicide is something that needs to be talked about more. It’s great that you wrote this out as sort of a guide for people to spot some common behaviors.
It’s so important to be open and compassionate. It’s even more important to recognize warning signs and step in when help is needed. Thank you for this post.
Lexa Fish says
This is an important issue to think about, talk about, and share with others. Thank you for bringing this controversial topic up.
Early this year, I was going through something and as a result, started having suicidal thoughts. Thankfully, I had my sister around and she helped me through that phase. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
Jesusa Gilliam says
This is a very important topic no one really wants to talk about. Its an out of sight out of mind issue.
Such a powerful post and a message that needs to be shared and heard.
Jasmine Hewitt says
we do need a lot more open discussions on this topic. if you need help, reach out.
Sydney | A World in Reach says
This is such an important topic – most people I know know of someone who has been affected by suicide. Thank you for sharing this information.
Definitely something that needs to be talked about. Especially being proactive on helping someone who is depressed.
Fatima Torres says
This brought back some memories of my college years. The first time suicide hit close to home was when a friend’s brother took his own life. It was tough to see her in class day after day.
David Elliott says
Good things to think about when it comes to people in your life who are showing signs that they might be suicidal. Supporting positive life changes is so very important. In addition, you are right when you say you need to exercise more. It does bring on those positive endorphins making you feel like you can handle more things in your life.
Suicide is really a sensitive topic. It’s important to be quite watchful of what we say to people who are prone to this.
Life is always worth living. The tough times are only temporary!
Kathryn at QuestFor47 says
Thank you for sharing this post. There is so much about mental health that isn’t talked about, but needs to. It’s so important to keep the conversation going!
Depression is the main cause of suicide I guess. We all need to be positive in our lives. I believe that the world is changing a lot every day. I mean there are so many things happening around the world which is quite disturbing and maybe that is one cause of depression. The second thing is music and movies is also causing the bad influence on people.
Nice post… Thanks for sharing.. 🙂
This post breaks my heart. We all have had down moments but its serious downhill spiral if anyone ever actually contemplates that and I hope this helps people really check for signs in their love ones considering this and stop them!
Betzy Cuellar says
Suicide is such a sensitive topic. In all honesty, if we know of anyone suffering from depression we should offer our friendship.
Jenny Silva says
This is such a huge issue going on right now! It’s so important that awareness is brought on this subject. I just experienced the loss of 2 people due to suicide within a couple of months of each other. Tragic.
Very deep post and one rich with information. This is great that you are raising awareness on this sensitive topic. Beautifully written too
One cannot wait for a life without hardships and suicide is not at all the solution. This is such an important topic to raise today. Good luck to you.
This is a great awareness post for suicide. You also offer great tips for how to go about someone that may be suicidal. Thank you for sharing this very important post
Suicide is not always the answer. We all know it’s not easy to live in this kind of reality. Thank you for this wonderful post. This is very deep..
Jack Marbida says
Life is so beautiful that no matter what we do we all have the solution in all that we do. We all have the option to be motivated in all the hardship. We may no longer have a choice we all have the state of constant to control over your responsibility to think.
kylie cre8tone says
Sometimes, it’s very hard to handle emotion… but.. whatever we do.. our life is the most important.. you’re right about saying no to suicide..
Ellie Plummer says
This is a brilliant post bringing awareness of suicide and some of the reasons behind it. I love that you’ve included ways to help a suicidal person, that’s very helpful and extremely important.
Azlin Bloor says
A very poignant and helpful post. I can’t even imagine the depths to which a person falls when the idea of suicide becomes more appealing. So many suicides we see in the public eye are of people we never would have expected it of.
The pictures choosen and used in this article are really impressive. The hand picture showing someone is seeking for our help to save them from drowning into deeper of depression.
This is such a great and informative read. Suicide has always been timeless. Many people turn to this so called “resolve” for many reasons. Life has always been unfair for everyone, but that makes it more mysterious, fun and beautiful for us to go on and continue living despite the problems we encounter. Thanks for this really nice share 🙂
As someone who lost someone to suicide, blame ran riot initially, “how didn’t we notice”, ” what kind of friends are we that we didn’t notice him suffering”, but alas it was his choice and his pain, and he didn’t let us in to his world so we could help.
sadness is so isolating, I think being kind and compassionate is the only way to show people suffering that they have a friend.
Kristi Ann says
Such a powerful message. Life is always worth living! Things will always get better.
GiGi Eats says
Suicide is something I would never in ten million years consider. I love life way too much. But it’s sad to hear about it happening to others because those people thought it the only way… Yet it’s not 🙁
Sometimes a person is so tortured hat he is not left with any option. But yes I agree professional help and family really helps! Great post!
Jenn @ EngineerMommy says
Mental health is such an important topic nowadays and it needs more awareness. This is informative regarding the signs to look for in an individual.
This is such an important and powerful post. Suicide affects so many people and we all need to do better to help those going through a difficult time. A great read.
Jessi Joachim says
This touched me more than you know. 5 years ago, 2 weeks after my daughter was born my cousin and life long friend took her own life. It was a dark time, and I had cut her out of my life years before due to choices she made and drugs and such… her mother, to this day, blames myself and our other friends for “abandoning her” when she needed it most and that hurts because I know we all did what we could and had to eventually do what was best for us.
Melissa Sanchez says
Beautifully written, and thank you for sharing and expanding on this difficult topic. I think that suicide awareness is something that we do not speak of enough. I have actually started to blog about depression and mental health – specifically targeting moms. I just hope that it sparks up conversations with other women and that we are able to speak of difficult topics.
It is such an important subject! Suicide prevention is so important. Taking your own life without real reason to it (Idon’t mix suicide and euthanasia) is stupid, people really need help. Awareness in suicide subject is super important
Laura Dove says
The suicide rates seem to be increasing over time and that is a real worry. I know in our local area there have been far too many, all young men, all with so much to live for.
Nicole S says
Great post girl. It is such a major issue affecting our world today
You provided a great lists of signs in recognizing a suicidal person. You always hear the phrase, “there were signs” but it is typically after someone has harmed himself or herself. We need to take this seriously as people are increasingly experiencing more pressures in life. We need to be ready to help those we love and come in contact with daily.
Rhian westbury says
My best friends partner of 7+ years passed away for this reason and it’s a shock when someone puts on a face which makes you not realise the pain they’re in. Not enough people (especially men) talk about their feelings x
Shannon Gurnee says
This is such important information to share because suicide is a real thing and there are warning signs to look for. Thank you so much for this blog post.
Devyani Ray says
It’s the hardest to speak up when you have suicidal thoughts. No family should ever have to go through this.
Sincerely Miss J says
Super informative and well written article about suicide. Important read to help educate others
Jessica Taylor says
This is something that I care deeply about. I work in the mental health field, so I know the struggle all too well.
I appreciate that you give us so much information about suicidal people and how to handle of course this is a growing problem in our society and we need to address it seriously!
This is a very informative post. Getting educated about mental health is very important.
Sara Welch says
I have lost too many loved ones to suicide. i do any and every thing I can to help those who suffer.
Vanessa Delia says
I have supported a few anti suicide places. I know too many who have taken their own life.
Committing suicides is a serious problem among people of all ages. That’s why, it’s really important to provide such people with the right help. I love this text, it can help a lot of people! 🙂
blair villanueva says
No matter how busy we are, we should not forget to give hug on our love ones, family and friends. It gives assurance that they can always open-up for help.
When I was in high school, several people committed suicide. It was very shocking and saddening. It’s so hard to learn that someone has committed suicide when people didn’t realize how much they were suffering.
I want to thank you for posting this. It is so important for all of us to be aware and for us to normalize conversations about mental health.
Thank you for such an important post. I have lost two people I love to suicide. It’s heartbreaking, but looking back the signs were there. We never want to believe someone will take their own life. Such a tragedy.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
This is a sad reality nowadays, that people have turned to suicide to end their misery. I am a parent and I stay as attuned to my children’s behavior as much as I can. Open communication is key, and we have to be able to truly listen to what they are saying (or doing). Thank you for sharing this post.
Dalene Ekirapa says
We should definitely say no to suicide and try our best to help those considering the move earlier. They always show their signs thus it’s easier to spot them and help them.
I believe it’s everyone’s personal decision – and unfortunately I’m not so convinced that things will always get better. I’m having a very good, fulfilled, happy life – however, I can imagine being in a situation where I think there is no way out – no way out off misery and dispair.
Nidhi Fouzdar says
what I feel in this issue is people who thinks about suicide should for once think about their parents, their struggle and no matter what the situation is there is always a way
I can’t even imagine what it must be like to be in that state of mind where suicide is the only answer. This was an informative post
What an amazing read! Thank you for opening my eyes with this post, I feel I am more educated on the matter and could maybe do something to help a suicidal person.
I’ve definitely felt this way before and it is not a great feeling. If it weren’t for my friends and family, I may have spiraled more downwards which is why I think it is so important for all of us to reach out to someone who might even seem remotely suicidal. It could make a huge difference.
Erica D Ardali says
I was suicidal for years. Thoughts and plans sort of leaned towards suicide and if I’m honest the thought does go through my head still to this day at random moments. I am so happy that I had enough will power to resist my thoughts.
This is such a big issue nowadays. Your post has many information and will work great for those persons who have a think of suicide. Thanks for sharing.
Fibi Tong says
Yes, I am agree with you! say no to suicide. Suicide doesn’t mean thing to end

I’m happy that you’ve enlightened this fact. There is no point in killing oneself, the only problem with those people is the lack of guidance and motivation. Time never remains same, they should believe in its transition.
Such a important topic to talk about. I come from psychology background myself and in my class I raise awareness about the same. Awareness will definitely help. More and more people shld talk about it.
This is such an important post. Suicide seems to be such a common issue these days. I try to watch out for signs in those that I am close to.
Michele Dennis says
This is such an important topic to discuss! Unfortunately, not everyone exhibits signs of depression, withdraw or wanting to self-harm… I have lost two friends in the past two weeks to suicide and no one saw any signs, not even those that were the closest to them. Everyone that knew them was completely blindsided and still has no idea why they did it…
Amber Myers says
I’m glad you wrote this. It will help people going through struggles. I always try to be there for people when they need it. Suicide is never the answer.
Suicide is a very sensitive yet extremely important subject to be discussed…especially if someone sounds suicidal…It’s helpful to know the signs to look out for.
Suicide is the worst and devil option that anyone can take as a decision to make. I hate to say this but suicide is not even an option to choose. People should live and be contented of what God has given to them. I hope all those people who do this will realize that they just wasted their life and hurt those people who love them.
This post is very timely considering it is mental health week. Suicide is a growing concern, helplines are getting more funding and I think we even have a welfare role. now in government. Mental health is being taken more seriously which is great. Your post contains a lot of useful information. Thank you for sharing.
Very informative and useful post. Definitely will be sharing this post.
Angela Fry says
Such an important post to share. It’s so sad that this is even an issue.
Jubilee D Meyer says
Thank you so much for this! Awareness is so important. I used to really struggle with suicidal thoughts and all of these tips are so right on
Jack Marbida says
Life so precious, i would say that people who are committing suicide does not feel the love and worth they have in this world. I highly recommend for them to undergo counseling.
Pete Simons says
Such a powerful post and much needed discussion. Thank you for putting this out there. I was suicidal once, thankfully no more.
Suicide can come as such a shock to people around that individual. It’s important to remember that people might seem ok on the outside but are struggling inside.
Tasha at Lady Boss Studio says
Such an important topic and so much good information here. Thank you for sharing.
Gill Trotman says
Very nicely written post. Mental health awareness is something that everybody needs to take seriously. Asking for help is not a form of weakness.
This is such an important topic to discuss. There are so many people suffering in silence and with our super crazy fast paced society, we often overlook their needs. This is good information for everyone!
This is such a scary subject. Anyone is susceptible to suicide and we all have to look for the signs.
This is a sad reality of our times and in fact more and more younger people are turning to suicide. Good that you penned this!
Catherine Santiago Jose says
Suicide is now a big issue in our society most especially during these days. Thank you for sharing this information with us at least we know how to handle our loved ones who are facing this kind of struggles.
Kristina @ Spirit of the soul says
Thank you for writing this. I have lost several people to suicide in the past few years. We, the friends, wish everyday that we saw the pain or had done more to help them so they would still be here with us today.
Beautifully written. It’s never a weakness to ask for help when you are hurting; it only takes bravery to seek support when you are challenged. I pray I never turn a deaf ear to someone at their time of need. This was a good read.
Diana Tidswell says
Such a great article to read, giving the information that is really happening in our society, I hope we could stop those people who have to think to kill themselves.
Surekha Busa says
This article is so perfect into this month as we are celebrating a mental health awareness. It is important to talk about this matter that mostly happens nowadays.
The people who go forward with such a devasting step has already been through a lot. We can only imagine their state of mind. It’s the responsibility of each one of us to keep a check on the mental condition of our loved ones and help them whenever needed.
Cătălina-Iuliana Nini says
I am glad to see nowadays there are so many posts, articles, videos, campaigns on this topic. It is important for those in need to realise they are never alone.
Michelle Leslie says
It’s such a difficult subject sometimes for people to talk about but we have to start doing it, so I for one am really glad you wrote this. Losing someone close to you to suicide is a hurt that stays with you for a very, very long time
Amanda Yorton says
Suicide is the easy way out of a “horrible” life. When I was younger, I wanted to take that way out. But something pushed me to continue on. It is hard to move out of those thoughts at time but thankfully, I have a great family who are here for me!
Francesca Jacklin says
This is such an important issue and with all aspects of mental health it’s good to be able to talk about them.
John Sallie says
I very important subject to deal with. My own son has had his struggles throughout the years so suicide is a discussion that I have engaged in more than once.
Brittany Vantrease says
Thank you for sharing this post. I’ve had family members who committed suicide and for them I think that family just didn’t believe that it would happen because they talked about it and never did anything about it. I think they grew more skeptical about it and that makes someone feel even more lonely, more depressed, and more isolated. It’s important to empathize with someone who is feeling suicidal and let them know that you’re there for them, but also without suffocating them with too much negative or even positive attention.
Thanks for sharing, this is definitely a topic that needs to have awareness spread, this was a great step!
Depression always precedes suicide and it doesn’t take long to go from low righ to high risk of suiciding if depression is not dealt with. The problem is most people fail to realise they are depressed until they reach a breaking point.
Rachel Stone says
Great and interesting post, really thought-provoking and sad too. The stats and facts on suicide are crazy aren’t they and so sad. It’s great more people are talking about mental health difficulties and suicide now to break that stigma and give people a chance to be heard.
sabrina barbante says
Suicide and suicide actions are always something quite hard to understand. I know when you face a deep depression period, lasting more years, life is actually what scares you more and it’s so frustrating when non depressed people tell you to look at the bright side of life, and at all the people who love you: the only thing you see… is one day they’ll all die. And you can’t stand it.
a little less than a year ago my good friend came back from overseas (he’s in the army and was in combat not once, not twice, but about 5 times) He suffers from PTSD because of war, and came very close to ending his life. He is continuing to get professional help for this and I am thankful he’s still around (as his kids are too!) Being there for a suicidal person can help, but professional help is a MUST!
Simone Verhoog says
“Most self-destructive individuals don’t need passing; they need the torment to stop.” This really stood out for me today. We have this idea of what suicidal people should look like and what they’re feeling. I’m really going to be more mindful in the future.
Carrie Lewis says
I lost a good friend to suicide. We were all shocked. We saw NO signs. Or at least that’s what we all said. And at the time, believed. Reading your powerful article is an intense but needed reminder that there are nearly ALWAYS signs. It is an incredibly useful and accurate post. I hope others who spot these behaviors, thoughts or tendencies, take your information and suggestions to heart. Because sometimes, there is no chance to go back and do it right the second time.
Thank you for sharing this. This is so important to know what to look out for in friends and family members.
This is such useful and important info for all of us to know. The facts on suicide are really sad. Thank you so much for sharing.
Good and interesting analysis of a very sensitive topic.
Jacinta Grand says
Mental health is an important issue in our society and it’s important that we talk about it. We’ve lost so many great people due tsevere depression and being surrounded by family and friends that didn’t recognize the warning signs. Thank you for writing about this important issue.
This is really useful and informative post, Yes we have to say no to suicide. I know that thoughts happens in everybody’s life at some point . But need to face the problem and move ahead, for that we need help.
The Panicked Foodie says
Thank you for writing about such an important topic, and also one of the top 10 causes of death for men and women. Suicide is still a very taboo subject, and hopefully we can all become more comfortable discussing it. I recently lost someone in my family to suicide a few months ago, and I only wish she knew how much she meant to all of us.
Dominique Brooks says
Thank you for sharing! This is a very important topic. My first exposure to suicide was in high school where we had multiple upperclassmen commit suicide. One of the young me had called all of his friends to find someone to talk to before he did it — no one had the time. If we had known the info in your article even though we were teens, things might have been different.
A friend of a friend just committed suicide. She was holding her two year old trying to take him with her, but he survived. It is such a sad thing. 🙁
Gladys Nava says
What a great article to read! Nowadays, young people are attempting to commit suicide. Most of the time are the youth! And this article are very helpful.
This is why it is so important to be kind to everyone. We never know what they’re going through. Smile to strangers; say hello. It can make a huge difference.
Pati Robins says
its so important to do something to help others not to step in that direction
Love Your life more than anything. Live full of life. There are so many thing need to be seen and experienced
Tiffany Yong says
There are more and more of such cases, and I’m ad to say some are not aware that they are suicidal. And some are not willing to look for professional help. Others will be using that as a way to seek for attention, taking attention from those who are truly in need of help~
It’s so sad to think someone could be having suicidal thoughts. These are excellent tips to help those in need, will remember them for sure.
London Mumma says
A really great and inspiring post, needed now more than ever.
This is such a sensitive topic but very important. We might ignore of miss the signs but it’s about time that we spread awareness so that we can help prevent this. Thank you for writing about this topic. It is very helfpul.
This is always a subject that needs talking about. Thank you for this post
Great article… it’s always good to talk about these things so people know it can happen to anyone and they can try their best to help out.
suicide awareness in important. this is a necessary subject to share for others to become informed.
Rikki Ridgeway says
This is such a powerful subjet to discuss, and it’s often not discussed enough. I, personally, have never met anyone that has committed suicide, and honestly didn’t know much about it or what signs to look for. I am thankful for people who share their knowledge with us to help us prevent this from happening. I like the show 13 Reasons Why as it has taught me a lot about the subject.
Monique Cláudia says
I think mental health is not taken seriously nowadays. Last year my friend started a moviment called “eu tu e a depressão “ meaning me, you and depression, to help everyone that suffer with any mental problems. Thanks for sharing this amazing post.
Jayashree Sengupta says
When I am angry I scale to the lower level I guess. But I have seen many of my acquaintances to suicide without any prior noticeable changes in the outward behavioral aspect and that is more dangerous.
All your posts are so inspirational, but I especially love the approach in this one! I wish more people talked about this problem more often
I really like this post, thank you for sharing
Your post is such a reminder that it’s always good to seek help and do not think that whatever you are going through can’t be resolved.
It breaks my heart that anyone would feel this desperate. I read recently that suicide accounted for 1.4% of all deaths worldwide, making it the 18th leading cause of death in 2016. Shocking.
Shaurya Singh says
Mental Health is a serious issue which should be included in textbooks as well . Many people doesn’t even consider it as an issue despite they use to make fun of victims . Gladly many people are coming ahead and started spreading awareness regarding this including some big famous faces . They shared their own story just to clear the misconception about this . You covered almost every aspect and it was worth reading .
Suicide and mental illness is something that should not be taboo and should be spoken about openly. There is a lot of shame around suicide and mental illness. The more we all communicate honestly about it, the more people can seek/receive help.
#SayNoToSuicide That’s really heart touching story you have shared. Let’s share more awareness about this so that everybody should not take this step
This is so well written. But I need you to know and everyone else incase you are going through any depression.. you really should talk it out. there is help where you look at. Regardless lovely article.. an issue which is less spoken about.
Lisa fucci says
My bff killed himself a long time ago. I’ve had a hard time coping. It’s such a sad and tragic event.
Sarah Fatima says
One of the most important and heartbreaking issues nowadays and the saddest part is the ration of suicide is increasing day by day. More people need to talk about this and spread awareness about this. I think hopelessness is one of the biggest reason behind many suicides.
Escaping from suicidal thoughts is sometimes very difficult. But nothing is impossible though. Such an inspiring post!
Sarah Meh says
Suicide is the worst reality that can be stopped if figured out at right time. I think a good communication is very important with family or friends or anyone reliable (counsellor) to deal with difficult situations in life.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Thank you for this post. It is very important that we offer our help to those who are suffering from mental illness. We should not wait for them to reach the point of contemplating suicide.
I don’t know any suicidal person but anyway it’s good to know how to help people who have problems.
This is such an important topic, and we need to bring it out of the darkness and into our conversations. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Eric kay says
suicide is such an epidemic. There needs to be more awareness and discussion about it. thanks for the info about it
this article reminded me of my teenage years when I had suicidal thoughts
Stephanie Parrell says
This is a great article! Suicide is a %100 preventable death and everyone should know how to help someone who may be struggling with this.
komal karnani says
we should more about this topic. I am glad you picked this. well expressed.
Chloé Arnold says
So glad you shared this information! This topic really should be covered more often, as it really is decently common and so heart breaking!
Khris Steven says
The suicidal rate in some part of the world is so alarming… Thank you for the posts.
Will share with my audience on twitter. It’s needs more eyes
Paulo Ribeiro says
This is a very important topic, that many don’t care about.
Thanks for remind us about it!
Terri Beavers says
Mental health is a very important topic people should talk about openly. Most people try to hide it or change the subject when its brought up, but I feel if it were talked about more they could get the proper help needed.
Very powerful post, a few years ago my husband lost his cousin to suicide. It’s so important to know all the signs.
kafeel bhatti says
thanks for sharing !!
This is a must-read! I have not known of other facts that I have learned from here. Mental health is always an unnoticeable issue and suicide is the worst outcome of any one who seems to be suffering inside their minds and emotions.
Wanda Lopez says
A topic that is now being herd of more often, but still not talked about enough. I’m glad you have this post. It’s so packed with valuable information. It saddens me to hear about someone that’s taken their life because of depression.
Wanda Lopez says
A topic not talked about enough. I’m glad you are using your platform to spread awareness. It’s super important to know how to help someone with suicidal thoughts.
This is such a great post! Suicide has started to become a more prevalent issue lately, and people need to know that there is always another way. Knowing the signs to look for in those close to us are very hekpful. Thanks for sharing!
Ann F. Snook-Moreau says
This post could save a life . . . thanks so much for this! Reaching out to friends, no matter their mental state, can have such a huge positive impact on them.
Sigrid Says says
Yeah, say no. I have attempted in the past though, whenever I had a fight with my mother. I always felt like everything is my fault. But I was such a coward to finish it off.
Suicide is now a big issue in our society nowadays and we really don’t know they reasons why they are doing this. thanks for sharing!
Yousra Naeem says
Everyday we come across news of suicides and i feel like crying because this world needs so much kindness. Thank you for writing this great post. This was much needed.
Mommy Sigrid says
If I was successful in my teenage years, then I wouldn’t have beautiful kids today.
Alison Rost says
Such great info for everyone to be aware of. It’s so easy for someone to end up in a downward spiral, especially if they already suffer from depression. Hopefully, the people around them can help see the warning signs as well.
I, too, can never support suicide. But I don’t judge the people who commited to it neither. We all need a strong support system in order to discourage such act. Thank you for writing about this.
We should have a strong system in place to listen and help others that are going through tough emotional, psychological and physical issues.
Gervin Khan says
I have never know that there are level of risk of suicide and I agree with others that everyone should have a very strong support system that will always be there to listen and to help us in times of tough situations.

Everything On A Plate says
It breaks our heart to hear and read about suicides being such a common affrair lately 🙁
subha Bose says
Must read for people going through sad and depressed phase of life
World in Eyes says
Glad you shared such valuable topic with us…Suicide has just become common nowadays and most of depressed people just think that commiting suicide is a simple solution of every difficult thing..indeed this isn’t right..great work though..
See, a person just doesn’t go ahead and commit suicide, they commit suicide when they can’t find a way out from his miseries. We need to make them believe that there’s a way out of there problem. We need to make them believe that we stand with them in their time of miseries. Anyone can become a sympathiser but it is very hard to empathise with people.
World in Eyes says
yeah completely do agree with your point but the reality is they have just set their mind on one thing that there is nothing which they can do…and in that situation our single given hope plays really vital role…
