Attempted suicides greatly outnumber suicides

Attempted suicide

It is possible that things may seem so hopeless that life doesn't seem worth living.

Stress and confusion


Suicide is the third leading cause of death among people between ages 15 and 24, with about 5,000 lives lost each year. Males comprise 84% of all suicides.

Attempted suicides greatly outnumber suicides. Because males often choose more violent methods in their attempts, they are often more successful. But females may attempt suicide more often than males.

If you have ever done some serious planning to commit suicide it is important to contact a trusted adult, suicide hotline 1-800-273-8255 or a mental health professional right now.

Risk factors are habits or histories that put someone at greater likelihood of having a problem. Some of the risk factors for suicide may be inherited, such as a family history of suicide. Others, like physical illness, may also be out of your control. But if you can recognize the risk factors for suicide early and act to change the ones you can control, you may save your life -- or that of a close friend or family member.

From WebMD, read the suicide risk factors below and check the ones you can control. It's important to take these risk factors for suicide very seriously:
  1. Previous suicide attempts -
  2. Psychological and mental disorders, especially depression and other mood disorders, schizophrenia, and social anxiety -
  3. Substance abuse and/or alcohol disorders -
  4. History of abuse or mistreatment -
  5. Family history of suicide-
  6. Feelings of hopelessness -
  7. Physical illness -
  8. Impulsive or aggressive tendencies -
  9. Financial or social loss -
  10. Relationship loss -
  11. Isolation or lack of social support -
  12. Easy access to methods/means of suicide -

Do not train your brain to see the negative, teach it to see the positive.
