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.
