Take Threats of Suicide Seriously

Suicide was recently ranked as the second leading cause of death for college students. Any talk of suicide by a friend or loved one should be taken seriously and help should be sought immediately. Suicide is often linked to untreated depression and both have many common warning signs including:

  • Sadness or anxiety
  • Feelings of guilt, helplessness or hopelessness
  • Trouble eating or sleeping
  • Withdrawing from friends and/or social activities
  • Loss of interest in hobbies, work, school, etc.
  • Increased use of alcohol or drugs
  • Anger

Specific signs of potential suicide include:

  • Talking openly about committing suicide
  • Talking indirectly about "wanting out" or "ending it all"
  • Taking unnecessary or life-threatening risks
  • Giving away personal possessions.
