Depression and Suicide

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 4:10 PM
Occasionally I will post articles or references to information that I find interesting and related to mental health.  Right now, Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of our minds due to the untimely death of Robin Williams. Please take a moment to read this article on how to recognize the symptoms.  Or if you are struggling with depression, please call for help immediately!  SUICIDE IS PREVENTABLE!

Warning Signs of Suicide
These signs may mean someone is at risk for suicide. Risk is greater if a behavior is new or has increased and if it seems related to a painful event, loss or change.
  • Talking about wanting to die or to kill oneself.
  • Looking for a way to kill oneself, such as searching online or buying a gun.
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live.
  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain.
  • Talking about being a burden to others.
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs.
  • Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly.
  • Sleeping too little or too much.
  • Withdrawn or feeling isolated.
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge.
  • Displaying extreme mood swings.
Additional Warning Signs of Suicide
  • Preoccupation with death.
  • Suddenly happier, calmer.
  • Loss of interest in things one cares about.
  • Visiting or calling people to say goodbye.
  • Making arrangements; setting one's affairs in order.
  • Giving things away, such as prized possessions.

A suicidal person urgently needs to see a doctor or mental health professional.
In an emergency, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

If you feel you are in a crisis, whether or not you are thinking about killing yourself, please call the Lifeline.

Nowadays, a lot of people are becoming depressed and having anxiety. We have to face the fact that anxiety and depression can lead up to suicide. What we can do is to choose whether to be the one who stops it or the one who causes it. We may not be aware of it, but what we say and what we do can be a great impact on others. We must be sensitive towards others because not everyone can handle being hurt.

The initial levels are fairly easy to overcome, so we recommend reaching levels without recovering. Once you have the free boosters from the crates, save them for the most challenging levels.
