Insight Counseling in Philadelphia Mississippi
September is Suicide Prevention Month.
Talking to or even asking someone about Suicide can be uncomfortable, but it is necessary if you suspect someone is having suicidal thoughts or experiencing emotional difficulties. One of the biggest myths is that a person might start considering suicide if he or she is asked. In fact, it may be a relief that someone else recognizes their pain. So Be Bold, ask the tough question, “Are you thinking about killing yourself?” Be there, be supportive, and encourage the person to talk to a mental health professional.
Also, if you are that person who is thinking about ending your life, consider getting help by talking to someone. Just talking to a nonjudgmental person about what you are going through can make a difference. Please call 1-800-273-8255e or consider talking to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor. Your life matters.
