Suicide & Self-Harm
Suicide refers to an act which causes one’s own death. There are many factors that can cause a person to experience suicidal thoughts or attempt suicide. Work, family, and social life factors, as well as extreme stress, can cause a range of emotions, including sadness, anxiety, and hopelessness. This can also cause, or be caused by, turmoil in family, friend, and romantic relationships, financial difficulties, or an underlying mental health condition. In severe cases, or left untreated, a person may have suicidal thoughts or attempt to commit suicide. Once a person has attempted suicide, they are at greater risk for future attempts. Having suicidal thoughts is different from occasionally feeling simply down or sad.
