Ep. 073, Dealing with Suicidal Thoughts

John talks about what to do if you have suicidal thoughts.


Dealing with Suicidal Thoughts

 

Many people deal with suicidal thoughts every day. Sadly, suicide is the second leading cause of death among our young people. If you are dealing with suicidal thoughts you have options. 

There are many different reasons why someone would think about ending their own life, and many of the thoughts involve some form of distorted thinking that somehow everyone would be better off.

But, that's far from the truth. If you are dealing with suicidal thoughts there are people who care about you. 

Find a good friend or family member to talk with, or contact a suicide lifeline to talk to someone who cares.

In the US contact the Suicide Prevention Life Line (800-273-8255) or go to their website www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org

For my international friends visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention at www.iasp.info

There is always help when you are at your darkest hour. Please don't give up hope, tomorrow is a new day.
