7 Ways In Helping With A Suicidal Friend Without Making It Worse

Published

on

According to American Psychiatric Association, depression or major depressive disorder is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home.

It affects an estimated one in 15 adults (6.7%) in any given year. And one in six people (16.6%) will experience depression at some time in their life. Depression can strike at any time, but on average, first appears during the late teens to mid-20s. Women are more likely than men to experience depression. Some studies show that one-third of women will experience a major depressive episode in their lifetime.

In an article released by Cosmopolitan, there are several simple things you can do when your friend either says he/she is suicidal or seriously seem to be:

Many suicidal people feel like people do not understand the gravity of the situation or the immense, unbearable, incomprehensible amount of pain you have to be in to legitimately want to die. Tell them you hear them, you see it, and you are worried.

Maybe they’ve already told their therapist about their being suicidal, maybe not. Maybe their therapist sucks. Maybe they’re working on it, but it’s still hard. Maybe they don’t have a therapist and you can help them find one. Whatever the case may be, ask! But also make it clear you’re still there to talk and not just pawning them off on a therapist.

When I was suicidal, I can’t tell you how many times I just wanted someone to come over and sit next to me. We didn’t even have to do anything. I just wanted them there. So go!

If you know they’re severely depressed or suicidal, next time you see them, bring them a juice or a smoothie or a soda or a key ring with something you know they love it. Remind them there are still good things in the world and you care.

Maybe your friend just posts questionable tweets or Facebook status updates, but you have a feeling something is seriously wrong. Email them! Tell them you’ve noticed, you see them, you hear them, and you’re there if they need to talk.

Even if you’ve been through some serious shit, do not say, “I know what you mean!!!” Because at the end of the day, you don’t, and it’s insulting and hurtful. Seriously, even if you think you’ve been there, you don’t know what it’s like to be that specific person, and assuming that you know exactly how they feel can do more harm than good.

You might be thinking, of course, I don’t want them to die! That should be obvious! It’s not obvious. No matter what their reasons are for wanting to die, hearing someone they know say they don’t want them to die is huge. Note: This is very different from saying, “Don’t die. I love hanging out with you!” which makes it about you and not them. They don’t really care that they make your life super fun because theirs is really painful right now. It’s all about framing it.

Depression is a silent killer. Share this article before it’s too late for someone.

This is said to be Gabriella’s first experience due to the pandemic.

He paid a staggering P44,000 for toys that his two children took. After they shopped for her children, Mariel also shopped for toys she donated to her chosen foundation.

Itinampok ni Karen Davila sa kanyang pinakabagong vlog ang bagong gawang bahay ng sikat na child star at online personality na si Awra Briguela.

Si McNeal “Awra” Briguela ang batang nag-viral dahil sa kakaibang facial expression na siya lang ang nakakagawa. Matapos maging viral, ilang mga palabas na ang nag request na mag guest siya, at mula doon, sumikat siya at naging isang sikat na child star.

Bilang isang child star, nagawa niyang lumabas sa iba’t ibang palabas at pelikula, at kabilang sa mga maimpluwensyang personalidad na pinakamalapit niya sa industriya ng show business ay ang Kapamilya superstar na si Vice Ganda.

Ibinahagi niya sa vlog ni Karen Davila na bagong lipat lang sila sa kanilang bagong bahay at wala siyang ibang nararamdaman kundi ang kaligayahan dahil sa wakas ay mabubuhay na sila ng masaya at kumportable sa isang bahay na malaki ang espasyo.

“Before, ‘yung bahay namin, mabilis lang kaming magkita-kitang family. Parang pagkalabas mo ng kwarto, nandiyan na agad ‘yung hinahanap mo. Dito, kailangan mo pang sumigaw-sigaw ng ‘Mommy!’ kasi naghahanapan pa kami paikot-ikot sa house,” ani ng aktor.

Samantala, narito naman ang ilan sa mga komento ng kaniyang mga fans at random netizens na hindi mapigilang humanga sa kaniya.

Jake Cuenca, binisita ang Grab Rider na natamaan ng ligaw na bala matapos siyang magka engkwentro sa mga pulis

Jake Cuenca was finally able to pay a visit to the delivery driver who had been struck by a stray bullet during a car chase with the cops.

Cuenca, who was involved in a car collision with authorities last month, may be seen on his Instagram profile today, Nov. 6, clutching the hand of delivery rider Eleazar Matinito. They seem to have met at the home of the cyclist.

“Masaya ako na nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na madalaw si Eleazar Martinito, ang Grab driver na nasaktan sa isang insidenteng hindi ko malilimutan. Taos pusong pasasalamat sa mga pulis na tumulong sa iyo at naging tulay para makilala kita,” Cuenca said.

The actor expressed his gratitude for the delivery rider’s well health and the fact that he is with his family.

“Hangad ko ang iyong patuloy na kaligtasan at nawa’y makabalik agad sa iyong trabaho. Nandito lang ako para sa’yo, Ely!” he addressed Martinito.

Cuenca’s girlfriend, Kylie Verzosa, replied on the actor’s Instagram post, offering her support.

“Proud of you boo,” the actress-beauty queen said.

Cuenca is accused of colliding with a police patrol car in Mandaluyong City on October 9. He allegedly drove away from the scene, prompting police to pursue him. They shot at his vehicle’s tire in an attempt to disable it. Martinito was struck by a stray bullet during the automobile chase.

Last month, Paulo Avelino defended Cuenca, claiming that his co-star was not driving while inebriated at the time of the incident. The actor’s car did not contain any unlawful chemicals or materials, according to authorities.

Cuenca stated that he was not arrested in an exclusive interview with “TV Patrol” last month. He stated he drove away from the scene of the road accident because the police officers were dressed in civilian clothing and armed with guns. He also stated that he wanted to assist the delivery rider who had been injured during the automobile chase.
