Suicide and You

Suicide. This is a topic that can be quite taboo in the rather inconsistent, chaotic, and difficult world we live in today. As the topic has slowly gained more recognition, instead of talking about it behind closed doors "per se," it has become a realistic issue that children, adolescents and adults all face in some way or another.
This could mean that you, yourself, may be having some suicidal ideation. It could mean you have tried to hurt yourself in the past. It could also mean you have a close family member or friend who has experienced suicidal thoughts, self-harm, or actually committed suicide. If you fall into any one of these categories, then I encourage you to read on.

I recently attended a conference on "Counseling Suicidal Persons." It was interesting because suicide rates are higher among young females who are sexually active- meaning the more adolescent females that were sexually active had higher rates of suicidal ideation and attempts. It was also noted in this particular conference that about 80% of elderly suicides are male. These pieces of information alone threw up red flags for me as a counselor as I realized that suicide can touch female, male, young, and old.

If you have suicidal thoughts, it is important to reach out for help. Calling 911, going to the nearest emergency room, or calling 1-800-784-2433 will get you immediate assistance. If you feel that someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, you can do the same for him/her.

A majority of people have contemplated ending their life in some way. It's about what people DO with those feelings that is of concern. If someone is describing being depressed and not wanting to "go on" but does not have a plan, this is probably a matter of the depression talking and seeing a psychiatrist and a talk therapist would be most helpful- unless there has been a history of suicide attempts (psychiatric care may be needed immediately). Other resources for people in any stage of the suicidal thought process can be found at the following links:

www.mentalhealth.org/suicide/prevention

www.surgeongeneral.gov/library

www.survivorsofsuicide.com

www.afsp.org

Remember: Life IS worth living. It is a gift and a blessing. Even the hardest of times can be overcome. It's ok to reach out for help and hurting yourself should never be the answer. If a loved one you know is dealing with suicidal issues, seek out assistance as soon as possible. Counselors, like myself, can be found on www.liveperson.com to chat with live or met with in person by setting up an appointment.
