Suicide Prevention Starts with Seeking Help for Mental Health Issues
The tragedy of suicide is not only devastating for the survivor’s family and friends but also deeply affects entire communities. It’s important to talk openly about suicide and make sure those who are struggling feel comfortable seeking help for mental health issues. We believe that creating an environment where individuals can access resources and support has the power to save lives.
At Revive Therapeutic Services, we understand that suicide prevention starts with mental health awareness. Every year, more than 44,000 people take their own lives in the United States alone. As a clinical practice that provides services to teenagers (14-18), young adults/college students, adults, parents, couples, families and older adults, we strive to spread awareness about suicide prevention and mental health issues.
Recognizing When Someone Needs Help
When it comes to recognizing when someone needs help for mental health issues like depression or anxiety, it’s important to be aware of warning signs such as drastic changes in behavior or mood swings. Other signs include withdrawing from social activities or isolating oneself from family or friends as well as increased drug or alcohol use. It’s also important to look out for comments such as expressing feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness as well as talking about wanting to die or engage in self-harm behavior.
If you know someone who is exhibiting any of these signs and behaviors it’s essential that they seek help immediately from a mental health professional before they become suicidal. Additionally, if you have thoughts of ending your life yourself it is important that you reach out right away either through a trusted friend oor family member –or a therapist— so you can get the help you need before things become more serious.
