Even though people at risk of suicide often hide how they feel, they often give warning signs. There can be changes in behavior or feelings as well as changes in how they think or feel.
There are a number of things someone might say, including:
- It seems like I’m trapped: “I can’t see any way out of this mess.”
- The feeling of burden: “They would be better off without me.”
- Having no sense of belonging: “I’m just not a part of any group.”
- A sense of hopelessness: “There is no point in trying. The situation will never get better.”
- I am to blame: “It is my fault.”
- There is no way out: “I just can’t handle this any longer.”
- “I’m alone… nobody cares about me anymore; no one would notice if I disappeared.”
- I’ll never be the same after this.”
- Helplessness: “Nothing I do makes a difference, it’s beyond my control, no one is able to help.”
Here are some signs to look out for in their behavior:
- Suicide attempt or attempts in the past
- Suicide talks
- Talking about “feeling trapped or experiencing unbearable pain”
- A feeling of agitation, anxiety, or irritability
- A hard time sleeping
- An alteration in mood
- Appearance change
- Leave of absence from work
- An event that has been stressful recently
- A feeling of alienation or social withdrawal
- Feeling preoccupied by internal thoughts or problems
- The orderly arrangement of their affairs
- Leaving previously important activities
- Having negative emotions such as sadness, anger, disconnection, hopelessness, loneliness, or helplessness.
A warning sign should prompt you to take the following action:
- Don’t tell the person that he or she is stupid, how it will hurt their family or friends, or how their behaviour is attention seeking.
- I’ve noticed that you haven’t been yourself lately, and I’m worried about you,” or “I’m wondering how you’re doing,” could be the way to start the conversation.
- Simply asking one of these questions can save a life.” Or ask, “Are you having thoughts of killing yourself?” This question won’t increase the risk, but a conversation like this will open the door for the individual to share personal feelings and experiences. Don’t ignore a person who is contemplating suicide. Help them access resources.
- It is important to acknowledge your own reactions to the situation. You might feel anxious or dismiss what’s happening. It is possible that you might become angry or annoyed at the person who acts withdrawn or irritable.
- Feeling out of your depth? Ask the person if someone else can help. There are several options available – you can enlist the help of a colleague or manager who has been trained in mental health first aid, or you can call Lifeline directly – 13 11 14.
- Don’t leave someone alone unless you are worried for your own safety if the situation is urgent and the person is in immediate danger. You should contact the person’s doctor, mental health crisis service, or dial 000 and inform them that their life is in danger.
