Connect With Peers
Many behaviors indicate the likelihood of suicide, so you can spot the warning signs in a friend, family member, or colleague if you’re paying attention.
Reach out to anyone who displays symptoms such as:
- Talking about death and making statements like, “I’m better off dead,” or “I wish I died during my birth.”
- Saying goodbye to family members and friends like it is the last time
- Mood swings and depression
- Social isolation and withdrawal
- Feeling of hopelessness
- Increased use of drugs or alcohol
When you can identify the signs early, you can take preventive measures to save a life. On World Suicide Prevention Day, ensure you meet peers battling mental health disorders, especially those who are about to give up on life, and make them feel valued. Doing so can save your loved one’s life.
Tell Your Story
Talking about suicide and other mental disorders is vital in fighting the notion that such conditions should remain hidden. Anxiety and depression treatment can only work if the society is open to discuss the mental issues. On September 10th, you can host or attend a panel discussion on topics like how alcohol and substance use disorders deepen contemplation of suicide.
Your story could be what those battling suicidal thoughts need right now. It can help depressed people to realize that if you can overcome the condition, they can too.
Educate Yourself and Teach Others
This day offers lots of scientific resources, expert opinions, and facts about mental health conditions. As such, you can learn a lot about suicide prevention methods.
In your community library, search for films, pamphlets, books, and events for in-depth information on the causes of suicide. With knowledge about suicide, you can dedicate the month of September to educating other people about mental health conditions, which can save lives.
Organize an Event on World Suicide Prevention Day
You can organize a suicide forum at a school, college, social hall, or workplace and invite mental health experts.
Furthermore, you can reach out to the corporate world for sponsorship of various events, such as community marathons and sporting tournaments. Use the event as an opportunity to talk to your community about suicide and other mental health disorders.
Seek Professional Treatment for Suicidal Tendencies
There is no better day to encourage a loved one battling suicidal thoughts to seek professional help than September 10th. Reach out to Renaissance Recovery Center if you have a friend, family member, or colleague with suicidal thoughts.
