Everyone faces situations that might be considered hopeless at the time. For many, such situations may include the unexpected death of a loved one, divorce, loss of job and others that present a great amount of stress and can lead to depression.
How people handle that depression and stress are very important, and many people will use the stress and the adversity to become stronger and work harder to achieve success.
Unfortunately, many others will not be able to handle the situation and feel that the only solution would be to end their own life.
Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States (the 10th leading causes of death) and claims approximately 44,000 people every year. Data show that men are more likely to commit suicide than women, and, among youth, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death.
Suicide is an increasing problem with people that facing what they believe to be insurmountable problems and such people need to receive help from relatives, friends, or professionals in the field of mental health.
It is important for people to look for warning signs of people you know. These warning signs may include talking about suicide, talk about how they can kill themselves, being socially withdrawn and other signs.
If you believe that someone you know is contemplating suicide, it is important to talk to them and look to seek help. Alerting the suicide helpline may be the best way to prevent suicide.
