    Suicide is the very big and serious problem now a days, which is increasing every year in it’s number of attempted rates by the peoples or number of committed suicide by the peoples. The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 1 million people die each year from suicide. What drives so many individuals to take their own lives. A suicidal person is in so much pain that he or she can see no other option, despite their desire for the pain to stop, most suicidal people are deeply conflicted about ending their own lives. They wish there was an alternative to suicide, but they just can’t see one.

    Suicidal ideas or suicidal thoughts are taking lives of many people, it includes anyone either any student, any unsatisfied work employee, any broken marriage personnel, or any relationship failure person

    Hence strong strategies for the prevention of suicide must be formulated but it is very important for us to identify the WARNING SIGNS OF SUICIDE then only we can prevent this evil. Warning Signs of Suicide could be: –

    • Talking about death or suicide, if anyone in the family frequently talks about suicide or has expressed the intentions of taking own life or self – harm.
    • Hopelessness, feeling of hopelessness, helplessness could be the very strong predictor of suicide, usually peoples with hopelessness makes negative and very pessimistic prediction of future, for them they have nothing can bring positive outcomes in their life.


    • Saying that they are a burden, peoples those who consider themselves as burden on others and consider themselves as useless entity form their loved ones mostly ended up in taking their lives.
    • Withdrawing from friends and family, increased isolation from family, friends or society, desire to be left alone could be the alarming signal.
    • Losing interest in activities, if any person is losing interest in the activities that he or she used to enjoy could be taken as matter of concern.
    • Extreme mood swings, sudden sense of being calm and happiness of an individual after a prolong period of depression could indicate that person has decide to commit suicide.
    • Giving away possessions, making will, giving out possession and making arrangements for families.
    • Saying goodbye to family and friends, unexpected visits or phone calls, saying “Good Bye” as if he or she won’t meet again.

    Mere recognizing or identifying the warning signs of suicide won’t prevent the incidence of suicide, unless we respond in an appropriate manner. Following strategies could be used to prevent suicide: –

    • Take all suicidal threats seriously – Usually peoples believe that if any body is talking about suicide that means he or she has no intention of dying but it’s not correct, if anyone is talking about suicide might be serious about taking own life so all suicidal threats must be taken seriously.
    • Suicidal attempts could be a CRY FOR HELP – Consider all suicidal attempts could be a cry for help, its not necessary that anyone who is attempting suicide want to kill himself either it could be the indication that the person is in emotional pain and don’t know how to deal with it.
    • Be a good listener – Listening is very important aspect this might show concern and availability to the person who is in emotional pain and this doesn’t require any expertise simply non – judgemental and no arguments are required, also you have no need to attempt to fix anything, just listen and be there that show your care, concern and availability.
    • Ask about Suicidal Feelings – There is a myth that talking about suicide will pop up the ideas of suicide in to the people’s mind the fact is that those thoughts and feelings are there regardless of what you might say. It is very important to ask about suicidal plans, and means to carry the plans, this might suggest the seriousness and intensity of the suicidal thought.
    • Don’t leave them alone – If anyone seem to be in danger of hurting themselves, do not leave them alone. Keep strict observation and take all steps to keep them away from any means that they could use to hurt themselves, such as weapons or pills.
    • Keeping SECRETS can KILL – Be aware that you may have to break your promise in order to help him, if anybody has told you about their intentions of dying and told you not to disclose it with anyone but in that moment, you should not keep it secret and inform it to their family members. Having him alive but angry with you is preferable to keeping a promise that leads to him taking his life.
    • Talk to Professionals – If you found anyone in the risk of suicide encourage them to talk to mental health care professionals.

    Having equipped with all the knowledge of prevention of suicide won’t make any change unless you spread the awareness. Just spread the awareness to the as many peoples you can which might be very helpful in saving life of others.
