Icon1 Feeling Suicidal?

Lots of teens feel depressed and upset sometimes, but if it gets to the point where you just want to just say "Screw it" to life, then you should read this.

Some teens kill themselves because they feel like it's the only way to escape the pain that they're feeling. The most common cause for suicide is depression, where it gets to the point when the person's thinking "There's nothing I can do to stop the pain". Some suicide cases aren't planned and are just impulsive acts.

Warning Signs:
Some warning signs of someone who's planning to kill themselves are:
  • Talking about death and/or suicide
  • Talking about "going away"
  • Giving away stuff "for the last time"
  • Feeling guilty or hopeless
  • Self-harming
  • Pulling away from friends and family
  • Pulling away from their social life

What can I do?
You can do a lot of things to stop someone from killing themselves, such as talking to a counselor or other trusted adult, or calling the suicide hotline.

Remember, if a friend commits suicide, it's not your fault. You tried to help them.

Thanks for enjoying this short article.

That can be true but sometimes there are not many or no signs at all.

True.. But its not just as simple as that.. Theres alot more to it..
And I guess you can say its not your fault, if a friend commits suicide.. But guilt is a very normal feeling so just saying 'its not your fault' isn't gonna do much, because its normal..
And if someones really set on ending there life, nothings gonna stop them.. You can't keep them locked in a box forever.

Sadly enough, there usually aren't any signs at all. I can say from experience, since I have lost about 4 friends to suicide. Also, because, I've tryed suicide myself. I gave off only 1 of those signs, which was self harm. I cut myself to releive pain. Not deep enought to kill, but enough to cause permanent scars/marks. I might have given another sign, which would have been talking about 'leaving forever'. I would often warn my friends of leaving the Earth forever, to escape the pain. Well, I'm still alive, becuase I realized how many people actually cared about me. So, thankz for the article. It was great.
