  • Just wondering, is anyone here interested in a video on how to help someone who’s thinking about suicide or have suicidal thinking? We can follow up with a video on that for those who have friends or family members who are struggling.

  • You know they don’t really show theses signs because if there thinking about why would they show it they would make a plan to do it

  • I’m done with life my friend showed me this video then laughed not knowing I’m suicidal all my other friends always use me. I hope all of you have the best life possible and please don’t follow the same path as me.

  • I met someone on discord who I’ve really gotten to know. They are actively suicidal and they have cut contact with me and others. Idk what to do.

  • I tried killing myself ended up in the mental hospital at 9 years old I’m 10 now I’m very deppresed a lot happened and my brother died like this comment if u can relate

  • Felt like m late to see dis video,

    Some time ago i was trying to kill myself by gulping a great amount of sleeping pills
    No one was there for helping me out
    No one was there beside me to love me to hold me to keep me safe to realise that I’m going to do something wrong and forbidden

    But
    The amount of pills went over for me and i was vomiting at midnight

    Now i realised that was a biggest mistake of my life

    V hv only one life to live v should live it wid love

    U r doing well
    U r doing well
    ��

  • Please, someone help me. I don’t know what to do, but I want to help. My older brother always says, “I’m worthless, if I die, no one will care.” Today is his birthday, an important day! But he just says, “oh I’ll just make my life shorter. No one will care. It’s just a normal day for anyone. Nothing special.” Please help. I’m not sure if he self harms. I think it’s because of the pressure from homework and studies, He’s going to college after all. He takes way too many AP classes as well. I haven’t asked him to get help yet, since I’m scared he will get mad and refuse. Please, I don’t want to lose someone. I’m so scared. Please. Life is too short to hate, but he just wants to cut it shorter. Please, I want to cry. This is too painful already.

  • I know that they will only going to love me if I die. That’s why every time I cry, the only thing that’s in my mind is suicide. And the reason why I always cry is bcuz of my family:<

  • Me, age 10: Maybe I’d be better off dead.
    Me, age 13: I could take all these pills at once.
    Me, age 15: Starts cutting
    Me, age 18: Looking for exit bags on the internet…

  • I want to die.
    But I remember my parents and realize what would it be like for them to lose me.
    Thats the only reason I havent ended it yet.
    I dont care about anything anymore.

  • 1. Suicidal talks
    2.giving away possessions
    3.Changing will
    4.Obtaining weapon
    5.Strange sleeping patterns
    6.Low energy
    7.Abusing drugs or alcohol
    8.low motivation for social life
    9.not participating in things they love
    10. Self harm
    11.risky behaviour
    12. Emotional outbursts
    13.body language
    14.past suicide attempts
    15.Happiness and calmness

  • Im going to end my life in my 18th birthday. Im a failure to others, im a mistake in life. I cant live anymore. My parents only want me to be perfect, my friends push me away and im always a third wheel, so i dont hang out with them as much, my peers want me to die, they hate me. I dont have a future. Everyone talks about God, but sometimes God cant save people from dying. Idc if i end up in hell or heaven. People use my depression for their own to make jokes or laugh at me. If this is the world, im ready to leave it.

  • when I tried to commit suicide, my parents didnt even ask if i was ok. after it they thought oh I was ok but after that I felt so numb and felt no feelings. but I came back home (I was in alabama) and I felt everything. no one ever asks if I’m okay even though they know I have a past with it.

  • Since I am seeing all these comments, I just wanted to tell you guys that these feelings aren’t gonna last forever. At some point, you will be happy again, as long as you keep pushing through. And trust me, talking to someone does actually help. I have been through this myself (I never attempted but thought about it a lot) and it definitely got better. Right now, I’m struggling with anxiety but I’m seeing a therapist and it’s really the best thing you can do. It’s obviously extremely hard, so take your time but it will really get better if you just let it all out and talk about it. And I know, that’s what you hear everywhere but that’s because it’s true. And you’re such an amazing and precious person and there certainly are people that genuinely love and care about you and they are willing to support you.
    You are strong, you are loved and you will (with time and patience) get through this. I believe in you��

    (also if anyone needs someone completely different to talk and just rant, drop any social media and I’ll DM you, just wanted to mention that <3)

  • Thank you Emma! I am a mental health nurse and used this video as a teaching aide for a small group of people. Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. We all found your video very helpful, practical, inspiring and empowering! Many thanks for a job well done!

  • Depression is a sad disease help the ones that need help or get them help ASAP wish I knew my stepson was dealing w depression Wish I could of been there for him so he could be here today he took his own life this yr in Feb 23, 20 only if I knew he was feeling alone I would of dropped everything to to be there w him to hold him and talk to him and make him feel like there is hope and life is not bad. I miss him so much I love you Cesar Rest in peace my son he was only 25 yrs left a daughter here she’s 2 yrs old it’s hard to deal w someone u loved take thier life

  • I try every day to fight the bullies but sometimes its so hard i would sit on my bed and cry myself to sleep. No matter what i do it dont stop. Ever since i was 6 i have been bullied im 14 now and sometimes i think why did i not take my life 2 years ago. But i sat down looked my bullies in the face and told them that if they keep this up that they will regret it. They laughed at me and pushed me and beat me up. I would love to know what it feels like to be able to sit in school and feel safe it just seems like the world today is just not a place to be. I have gotten to the point where i cant take it no more. I hope the person reading this dont follow the same fait as me. Keep fighting for as long at you can but im done fighting. Hope you are doing well…….

  • Bullying is really hurting me I don’t want to go through this anymore if it continues summer is here so I’m very happy but I’m very worried about school starting up again I can’t Handel bullying. ����������

  • Hello everyone! I Wanted to share the gospel with you all, have a lovely and amazingly blessed day! ♡︎ Coco ♡︎

    Mark 16: 15
    15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
    16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    Proverbs 3:6
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

    ☀️��☀️��☀️��☀️��☀️��☀️��

    John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

    ☀️��☀️��☀️��☀️��☀️��☀️��

    Jesus Christ created only one church. And that is HIS church which is the (church of Christ.)

    (Not a (man made) church like: catholic, baptist, Muslim, Pentecostal, etc…) but His church the only one you can read about in the Bible

    Matthew 16:18
    And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    Romans 16:16
    Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.

    ��������������������������

    And the members of the Lords church are called Christians

    Acts 11:26
    And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

    Colossians 1:18
    And he is the head of the body, the ch urch: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

    Some people believe that The Father excepts us with all of our sins and flaws; Some also believe that it is okay to do or say whatever. That is not true. He is long suffering but He is not forever suffering.

    We are in the last days; and we all should get it right before the day comes. As Christians we are carrying something and that is His word; If we don’t share it, we’re going to be held accountable.

    Romans 1:26
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    Deuteronomy 22:5
    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    1 Timothy 1:10 KJV
    For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

    Titus 2:12
    Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

    Leviticus 19:28
    Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

    1 Corinthians 6:19-20
    19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
    20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

    The plan of salvation:

    Hear: Romans 10:17
    So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Believe: Mark:16:16
    He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    Repent: Luke 13:3
    I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

    Confess: Matthew 10:32
    Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also
    before my Father which is in heaven.

    Be Baptized: Galatians 3:27
    For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

    [And then we all must live faithful unto death]

    Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

    HAVE A BLESSED TIME!��

  • I use to hear kids talk about being suicidal when I was in junior high. I figured they just wanted attention. Age, life experience, and time in the mental health industry have taught me differently. This video helps answer questions on how to approach someone talking about suicide, whether you think they are joking or not. These simple skills can save lives and help express to someone experiencing suicidality that you truly care.

  • A friend that I met not long ago has been confiding in me a lot and I’m extremely worried for him. His family didnt know but with the lockdown I cant meet up with him, only message. He had been telling me all these thoughts so I messaged his sister telling her that I was worried and some of the stuff he told me. Now I feel like shit and that I might’ve done the wrong thing cause hes really upset that I told her. I dont know what to do

  • 14 was close to home, there can be an addition to this:
    Both my great uncle and uncle did this one thing:
    Before the final act, they deeply hugged my grandmother, which was somewhat uncharacteristic for both of them. It was a long and deep emotional hug… like a final goodbye without words…
    I wished i saw it with my uncle because he was living with us in our basement room. I still remember my grandmother’s scream that morning…
    I still blame myself for a number of reasons.

  • I watched this as a joke, I was like “there’s no way to know if someone is planning on su1c1d3, we hide it very well” and then I watched and noticed I have all the 14 ‘signals’ that tell when someone is thinking about it ������

  • I didn’t talk to my family since Start of July. My after work class was cyber bullying me and now acts like it never happened. My work colleagues were talking behind my back. And my crush who i had a crush on for over a year…almost raped me on my second date… For two hours i was begging him to stop and since i don’t have any good friends anymore i don’t have anyone to talk to… My ex cheated on me with my cousin… Whom I still kinda miss. People mostly write me when they need something from me… I’m depressed and now I was kinda preparing myself for suicide because my heart really hurts from all this pain. I only wanted to be loved ffs. I will wait for a while because I want to leave deptfree and everything cleaned up and at work everything prepared so I never let anyone do anything for me even after my death

  • Has anyone ever actually called the suicide prevention hotline themselves? She is promoting it in the video but probably has never called it or listened to it herself. I need some commenters to tell me what that call sounds like.

  • Yes. It is very stressful! My parent and sibling have talked about killing themselves for years..lve tried supporting them, offered help and compassion but I’m so fed up because they don’t t a lk to a therapist as l suggested. It really gets to be off putting when people do nothing positive to help themselves and just drink, take meds, sleeping pills or Valium. And the same people aren’t there when you’re feeling down! I use to get upset even despondent just listening to them but l finally realized they need to be proactive and act on suggestions.

  • I almost jumped out of a rooftop just because I was depressed and I wanted to commit suicide but as I remembered to take a deep breath and count to three I stopped I meant myself to stop I called my best friend as fast as I can and then she came running to me she told me to stop stop it but I couldn’t so she helped even though I still do some bad stuff I still still still kind of is my best friend to help

  • I didnt really want to die cause I wanted my suffering to end, it was more because I felt like I was just a bother to people

    Problem is, nobody ever acts like this

  • Yesterday I bought I gun and I put it in my mouth, I was there right to kill myself, but I was scared to pull the trigger, I couldn’t do it, I think I’m in deep depression but I’m not sure, that’s why I’m here at 3:27 am writing this

  • We want to say thank you to everyone who made this video possible. Your generous support made it possible. This is such an important topic and we hope that it can help many others. Please share with someone who needs this. Please.

  • My friends went on a rant about how much they loved me and threw out all my knives. I really love them for it. Then my BFF had me sleepover at her house for the whole weekend so she could watch me

  • I wann die cause everyone except my elders always bully me my bro hits me for no reason so I wanna die and just go to heaven or hell

  • If you want to kill yourself, spend your nights alone, only hang with toxic people that make you feel worse, remember how little you’ve done with your life, practice putting yourself down, avoid/get rid of therapists, never call helplines or the police, stay stuck in your own personal hell, and give up all hope. I think I’ve covered almost everything on the list.

  • I tell my family I want to die so much time life is not right I wish I could ask for a something but I’m afraid I just want it to go that all

  • Here is a hug for those who never got one when they needed one��‍♀️��‍♀️�� Here is a few words of comfort for those who never heard them when they needed to hear them “It’s going to be okay, you’re alright, you’re safe, you’re loved and cared for. You will get through this. You’re not alone.” And some words to carry you forth Remember You are stronger than you think, braver than you feel, smarter than you know,life is tough but so are you! Peace and happiness be with you all ��✌��

  • stay connected was reminding me of BTS Leader Kim Nam Joon speeching about to love myself with Unicef. And I still feel guilty and life is sucks

  • My friend told me they were thinking about dying the other day and I’ve not stopped crying I’m struggling to get to sleep cause I’m scared that there gonna do it and I rly need help.

  • my girlfriend is suicidal and i feel like i can’t do anything. she hates comfort and never lets her feelings out i don’t know what to do it really just hurts so much.

  • so my girlfriend attempted suicide by strangulation and I want to help but she is on the other side of the state the only way of contacting her is on social media what could I do to help

  • not having enough cats and dogs is a serious issue but some issues are slightly worse
    and honestly live for yourself or at least try to people just dont care most of them amd they might even feel better that you have a shitty life and most dont want your electrons rubbing on their lives
    and hey you just dont die ok❤
