Warning Signs for Parents and Caregivers

If you are concerned ask yourself if your son or daughter has hown or shared any of the following:

1. Talk about wanting to die, be dead, or about suicide, or are they cutting or burning themselves?

2. Feeling like things may never get better, seeming like they are in terrible emotional pain (like something is wrong deep inside but they can't make it go away), or they are struggling to deal with a big loss in their life?

3. Or is your gut telling you to be worried because they have withdrawn from everyone and everything, have become more anxious or on edge, seem unusually angry, or just don't seem normal to you?

Listen For:

Talk of suicide: “I just want to go to sleep and never wake up. “if ____happens, I’ll kill myself.”

Talk of feeling hopeless: “What is the point? Nothing is going to get better.”

Talk of feeling like a burden to others. “They would be better off without me.”

Watch For:

Increasing use of alcohol or drugs

Withdrawing from activities

Looking for a way to kill themselves, such as searching online for materials or means

Sleeping too little or too much
