LEARN TO RECOGNIZE THE WARNING SIGNS!

  • SIGNS OF DEPRESSION

    These may include changes in eating and sleeping habits, anxiety, restlessness, fatigue, feelings of hopelessness and guilt, deep sadness, and loss of interest in usual activities. Depression can also look like rage, anger, aggressiveness and self-hate.

    PROBLEMS IN SCHOOL

    A dramatic drop in grades, falling asleep in class, emotional outbursts, irritable and moody behavior that is unusual for that teen.

    THEMES OF DEATH

    A desire to end one’s life may show up in the person’s artwork, poetry, essays, letters and music they listen to obsessively, etc….

    If you or your friends are showing these warning signs of depression and thoughts of suicide —GET HELP!

  • A PREVIOUS SUICIDE ATTEMPT

    Many teens who commit suicide have attempted before.

    VERBAL THREATS

    Statements such as: “You’d be better off without me,” or “I wish I were dead” should always be taken seriously.

    CHANGES IN BEHAVIOR

    Normally active teens may become withdrawn and cautious teens may start taking unusual risks. All sudden changes of behavior (good or bad) should be questioned.

    SUBSTANCE ABUSE

    Some suicide attempts/thoughts can be linked to alcohol and drug use.
