Suicide: The warning signs

MYTH: Most suicides happen suddenly without warning

FACT: Majority of suicides have been preceded by warning signs, whether verbal or behavioral. Of course there are some suicides that occur without warning. But it is important to understand what the warning signs are and look out for them.

Well, the probable answer is NO!! A suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn’t mean that help isn’t wanted. Most of the people who commit suicide don’t want to die; all they want is the pain they are going through to end.

So you must be wondering what you can do about it. Well, there is a lot we can do. We can begin with knowing what the warning signs of suicide are. And if you think you know a family member or a friend who may be thinking about suicide, talk to them openly – Do Not be afraid to bring it up. You may help in saving a life…

Here are the three key warning signs:

  • Threatening to hurt or kill self
  • Looking for ways to kill self; seeking access to pills, weapons or other means
  • Talking or writing about death, dying or suicide

Other warning signs to be alert of are:

  • Hopelessness
  • Rage, anger, seeking revenge
  • Acting reckless or engaging in risky activities, seemingly without thinking
  • Feeling trapped – like there’s no way out
  • Increasing alcohol or drug abuse
  • Withdrawing from friends, family or society
