Coping with Suicidal Thoughts

Coping with Suicidal Thoughts

I ran across a great web site today and wanted to share it as a resource.  Many people suffer from suicidal thoughts.  After working for over a year in a local emergency department performing psychological evaluations I found that these types of thoughts don’t discriminate.  People from all walks of life, with a range of life circumstances and situations can be affected by these thoughts.

There are a few common threads that would show up with these individuals.  Most of them suffered from depression, and had been dealing with it for a long time.  Another common theme was lack of support.  Many individuals had strained family relationships, had stopped going/never started counseling and felt pretty hopeless.  Often times as well these thoughts were circumstantial, meaning that they had just had a major life event, death of a loved one, broken relationship, among others.

If you or a loved one suffer from depression, anxiety, or suicidal thoughts, it is time to reach out.  There are numerous resources available to help. Counseling can be a great way to move through these feelings and move toward happiness and fulfillment.  We can help, give us a call and set up an appointment today.
