What Are Suicidal Feelings?
Anyone can feel suicidal and it can be for any reason.

You may feel down & upset with things that have happened or are happening to you.  This is normal.

But, sometimes these feelings become deep and constantly affect you. You may think the only thing you have left is to end your life, you deserve to be listened to and supported.

You must always remember there is always help and support to help you get through this, you are not alone.
What Can Cause Suicidal Feelings?
You may feel under pressure from your peers or family.

You suffer from low self esteem.

You use alcohol & drugs when you become upset & unhappy.

You may be suffering from abuse, assault, addiction, bullying, bereavement or sexuality worries.  

You may have experienced a traumatic event.

If you feel alone and think that no one cares about you.

Any one of these might lead you to think about suicide.
Things To Remember

Your reason for thinking about suicide is valid and you deserve to get help.

Talk to someone you trust a family member, teacher or friend

One person's death can affect so many people it spreads throughout family and friends, many struggle to come to terms with it.

Most suicidal people do not want to die, they cannot seem to live with the pain they are experiencing any longer.
