      What are the warning signs of suicide?

      Suicide ranks as the 10 th leading cause of death in the US. In 2017, 47,173 Americans committed suicide and there were an estimated 1,400,000 suicide attempts. Those who want to commit suicide don’t really want to die, they want an escape from pain. Suicide is preventable and here are some warning signs to watch out for.

      Risk factors

      People who are at high risk for suicide are those grappling with mental issues such as depression, those who have suffered a traumatic event such as the loss of a loved one or a job, financial loss, serious legal problems, addiction to alcohol and drugs, a history of trauma or abuse, major physical illness, severe and lasting pain, sudden disability, heartbreak and so on.

      Speaking about death

      Some may be quite open about their intention to commit suicide. They may speak about death and express a wish to die. You might catch them researching ways to commit suicide and indulging in activities such as buying sleeping pills or knives.

      Drawing up plans

      The person who intends to commit suicide will make plans such as drawing up a will, writing a suicide note and so on. They may give away their belongings and say goodbye to others.

      Withdrawing from others

      A suicidal person is likely to withdraw from others especially close family and friends. They may end up being aloof and isolated.

      Mood swings and sleep patterns

      A suicidal person may exhibit a wide range of mood swings such as irritation, aggressiveness, sadness, happiness, anxiety and so on. They may be in bad moods but suddenly turn calm once they decide to commit suicide. They might end up either sleeping far more than usual or sleeping lesser.

      Risky behavior

      The person may do reckless things such as driving rashly, consuming too much alcohol, abuse drugs and so on.
