Suicide Warning Signs

Over 44,000 Americans die every year by suicide. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. Currently, suicide costs the US just under $70 Billion annually. The annual rate of suicides has steadily increased every year beginning in 2007. Contrary to the stereotypical thought that teenagers are the largest area of the population dealing with suicide, the statistics show it is more commonly found among middle-aged individuals. There is no single or specific cause for suicide, and it doesn’t discriminate against races or gender. While the reason can’t always be determined, there are signs that someone may be contemplating suicide or that they may be at a higher risk level. These signs are not to be taken lightly. The following is a list of common warning signs that may indicate someone is suicidal.

  • feeling trapped or talking about unbearable pain
  • feeling hopeless or pointless
  • anxiety, agitation, or restlessness
  • extreme mood swings
  • moments of rage or discussions of hatred
  • feeling like a burden to loved ones
  • withdrawal or isolation
  • continually sleeping or not sleeping at all
  • depression
