What Are Suicide Warning Signs?
Verbally threatening to kill themselves.
Obtaining lethal means
Gaining access to firearms, dangerous drugs, poison, or other means.
Talking about death
Bringing up death or suicide in conversations, writing about dying, or posting on social media about suicide.
Drastic mood swings
Hopelessness, feeling trapped, rage, anger, irritability, anxiety, or vengeful thoughts.
Sleeping too little or too much, avoiding friends and family members, giving away prized possessions, and expressing goodbye sentiments to loved ones.
Verbal suicide threats are among the most serious suicide warning signs. Some people may think that if a person talks about killing themselves, they aren’t serious, but this is not true. Someone who talks about ending their life may already have a plan to do so. As a mental health first aider, take every suicide threat seriously, even if it sounds like a joke or offhand remark.

We must each tell the truth and repair what is in disrepair and break down and recreate what is old and outdated.

The Antidote - Oliver Burkman
There are lots of ways of being miserable,’ says a character by Edith Wharton, ‘but there’s only one way of being comfortable, and that is to stop running around after happiness... But it also hints at the possibility of a more hopeful alternative, an approach to happiness that might take a radically different form. The first step... deliberately plunging more deeply into what we think of as negative, may be a precondition of true happiness.
