Are you thinking about suicide? Are you worried about a family member, or friend commiting suicide? I have links to hotlines and support groups.Suicide is a solution to a temporary problem. (USUALLY A TEMPORARY PROBLEM)
My name's Chris, and I know first hand what suicide does to people. When I was twelve my father commited suicide. Then at the age of nineteen my best friend commited suicide. I have learned to deal with the pain, loss and suffering. Now I want to try my best to prevent it from happening to others.
I'm thirty years old and work as a police officer in Southern California.My goal is to help people realize there are people who care. Don't get caught in the moment. Their is so much to life.
1. Why do people attempt suicide?
People usually attempt suicide to block unbearable emotional pain, which is caused by a wide variety of problems. It is often a cry for help. A person attempting suicide is often so distressed that they are unable to see that they have other options: I want to help prevent a tragedy by endeavoring to understand how they feel and helping them to look for better choices that they could make. Suicidal people often feel terribly isolated; because of their distress, they may not think of anyone they can turn to, furthering this isolation. Suicide effects your family,your friends, and others who know you.
