Facts About Suicide

People who talk about suicide do it. About 80% of the time, people who kill themselves have given out definite signals or talked about it to someone.

People who are suicidal don't want to die. Most suicidal people are ambivalent about dying, they just want to stop the pain.

Talking about suicide will not encourage someone to try it. It is more likely that giving someone the opportunity to talk openly about their feelings will in itself reduce the risk of suicide.

Anyone is the type. People of all kinds, cultures, ages, economic and education levels end their own lives. Don't ever dismiss your premonitions about someone because they're not the type.

The motives for suicide are deep and longstanding. While a recent trauma or event may precipitate a sudden suicide, the problems and subsequent feelings that led to it would have had a long history. For example, a student may appear to have attempted suicide because his girlfriend broke up with him, but the low self-esteem and feelings of worthlessness that made the break-up so devastating would have deep roots.

Every 18 minutes someone dies of suicide in the U.S. (i got that from the anit- suicide song "hold on" music video by Good Charlotte)

A Simple Quote
"...I felt sad, because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something that nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it's already happened."
