People with suicidal thoughts often exhibit warning signs. Other times people isolate themselves and don’t want to talk about their depression and hopeless feelings. Your loved one needs to know that you care and will support them no matter what. You don’t have to know how serious the situation is to ask for help. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction and other mental disorders are treatable illnesses and not a sign of personal weakness.
People can get so hopeless that they will ever get better that it leads to despair/depression and sometimes suicide because they think this is the only way out. But there is hope and help. -Dr. Daniel Binus, MD
