You can think of yourself as being in a different state of mind, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not feeling suicidal.
You might be feeling sad, depressed, angry, anxious or even anxious, which can make you think about other things that you’ve been neglecting.
If you’re thinking about suicide or suicidal thoughts, there are things you can do to help yourself.
These things include:Talking about the thoughtsYou can say something like, “I’ve thought about this, I’ve thought of that, and I’ve done everything I can to avoid thinking about it”.
Talking to a friend or family memberIt can help to think of people you know who are thinking about things.
You can find out more about talking to a close friend or someone who’s close to you.
If your thoughts about suicide are getting more intense, you may need to see a GP, mental health professional or social worker.
You should talk to your GP or mental health worker about how to treat your mental health condition.
A good mental health support group is one you can join if you’re feeling anxious.
It can be your local mental health centre, a support group for people who are struggling with mental health, or a group of people who have been through the same things you are.
If it’s difficult to talk to someone at your local health centre or support group, talk to another person who has been through similar issues.
If someone is having suicidal ideas about you, try to stop talking to them or they may think you’re being rude.
Take a few minutes to think about the problem, and then try to find out if you can help them.
If that doesn, they may be able to see the right person to talk with.
Talking to someone with suicidal thoughts or suicidal feelingsIf you or someone you know has suicidal thoughts about you or anyone you know, it’s important to talk about them.
You can find support for suicidal thoughts and suicidal feelings in the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the National Crisis Helpline, or online, by using the Samaritans or calling 111.
If there’s someone you think might be thinking about you and you think you need to talk, try speaking to them.
You could say, “It’s difficult for me to talk in this moment, but I’m here for you.
I need to tell you what I’m feeling right now.”
Talk to them in the moment and be ready to listen.
If they need help, they should tell you, “Please speak to me and I’ll listen”.
If you don’t have the time to talk or don’t want to talk at the moment, or you’re having trouble breathing, try taking some painkillers, taking some vitamins or taking a nap.
If the suicidal thoughts have gotten more intense or intense, they can become dangerous.
If they become more dangerous, talk with a doctor.
