Warning signs that someone may attempt suicide

You can’t see what a person is feeling on the inside, so it isn’t always easy to identify when someone is having suicidal thoughts. However, some outward warning signs that a person may be contemplating suicide include:

*talking about feeling hopeless, trapped, or alone

*saying they have no reason to go on living

*making a will or giving away personal possessions

*searching for a means of doing personal harm, such as buying a gun

*sleeping too much or too little

*eating too little or eating too much, resulting in significant weight gain or loss

*engaging in reckless behaviors, including excessive alcohol or drug consumption

*avoiding social interactions with others

*expressing rage or intentions to seek revenge

*showing signs of extreme anxiousness or agitation

*having dramatic mood swings

*talking about suicide as a way out

It can feel scary, but taking action and getting someone the help they need may help prevent a suicide attempt or death.
