The depression has so distorted the victim’s perception that they are not as aware of how the act of suicide will cause untold grief for their loved ones; the focus is simply on escaping the pain and despair.

Because it is a combination of these psychiatric, biological, and environmental risk factors that ultimately leads to an individual’s suicide, interventions that address both the role of stressors and raise the threshold for acting on suicidal impulses are critical to prevention.

Likewise, depression is a precursor to suicide, a behavior that can be viewed as a maladapti ve extreme outgrowth of insensitivity to risk: Suicidal individuals are generally blind to the fear of suffering and death that others feel, and instead focus solely on how their deaths will solve a multitude of problems.

  • I’ve thought about suicide a lot, the only thing that has stopped me is the thought of my kids finding me. The key is to find hope in even the smallest places, even though depression still haunts me, I try to find that small light to get me out of the darkness.

    Depression cripples you in ways that are hard to describe. To all you struggling, know that others are too, including me and we can help each other. Reach out, people care more than you think. Stay strong ��

  • Hope is what humans have manufactured to avoid living in the present. Hope is what the corporate task masters count on to keep employees in line to generate wealth for THEM. Hope is a cop-out to fixing real issues in our society and our lives. F*&k hope.

  • To learn about the use of electroshock/ECT see videos under youtube heading of ectjustice and that will pull up several from testing following ECT to medical malpractice claims we are working to bring in addition to product liability suit. This is used for a variety of mental health issues and involves 5 billion annually in US alone. Contact the DK law group in CA if you have had ECT. Once you have learned the truth of this procedure I hope you will speak out on public social media so others are also aware. Given Covid many will be offered this to deal with mental health issues and need the truth. Often used in suicidal patients, but there is an actual an increase in suicide following.

  • Hi, there is a non medical based tool called yoga prana vidya for improving your emotional and mental state which includes rhythmic breathing, planetary peace meditation, healing process of your mind n heart,this has testified to heal many psychosomatic illnesses including anxiety, bipolar depression and even cancer, corona etc. They have developed an app called “YPV sadhana” app, which is add free and only interested to improve the mental and emotional state of people. This DOES NOT include any yoga poses I am forwarding this message as it has helped me and I want others to make use of this beautiful tool.This will also help you to remain in high mental and emotional state

  • Thank you for talking about this, Its really important that we destigmatize depression and mental illness, and get these people some help.

  • Hope is what perpetuates my depression more than anything. I keep hoping for things to improve, even when I know that all is hopeless. Fooling one’s self is never a good thing (delusion = fixed, false belief).
