Warning Signs of Suicide


Nowadays, we often hear the news of people dying by suicide. There is a narrative that some people resort to this method to escape from suffering and misery. Those who contemplate suicide may exhibit certain signs to those close to them. It may be helpful to try to recognise these three aspects when identifying suicide warning signs:

Verbal Cues:

Behavioral Changes:

Emotional Signs:

Whenever you observe potential signs of suicide in someone close, it is important to engage in a compassionate conversation, offer support, and listen without judgement. Avoid making assumptions. Open dialogue and the expression of emotions can provide comfort and alleviate the emotional burden, offering strength to continue living. Listening is a powerful tool in providing emotional support and can help individuals to develop resilience to cope with the difficulties.
