Who is most susceptible to suicide?
People who consider suicide are dealing with Major Depression. They experience suicidal thoughts and feelings as a result of emotional pain from either life circumstances, biological malfunctions, or a combination of the two.
The major depression that’s linked to suicide can happen to anyone. No one is exempt. Which means, suicide is not about a moral weakness or character flaw. When life becomes too difficult either from circumstances a person can’t control or from physical pain (which can be neurological) it’s only a logical train of thought to start considering suicide.
What causes a person to think about committing suicide?
Many variables contribute to an individual’s decision to end his/her life. They can range from factors such as the loss of a loved one, childhood abuse or other forms of major trauma, to serious physical illness or major life changes. These occurrences can lead a person to feel completely overwhelmed and unable to cope. Without proper support from community, a person will start to think about suicide and may eventually choose to take their life.
At what stage of life is a person most susceptible?
Seriously considering suicide can happen at any stage of life. Though, children can have depression, a person isn’t likely to think about suicide until their teen years. Suicidal thoughts can happen anywhere from age 16 to senior years.
The most serious cases are teens and middle-age men. When a person in either of these categories says they are thinking about committing suicide get help immediately. Don’t wait. Teens can attempt suicide as a call for help and end up killing themselves. Middle-aged men, on the other hand, are planned and deliberate. When they no longer want to live they take immediate action.
Can suicide be prevented?
Suicide is 100% preventible. Considering suicide at one point or another is actually quite normal. Seriously thinking about and planning for suicide is more serious, but people who deal with this can completely reverse the way they feel in a matter or moments to months. There are treatments that can help with the Major Depression that leads to suicide.
