There are more than 1.1 million suicide attempts in United States every year. In fact 1 out of 14 Americans will know someone who'll commit suicide this year. Worldwide the problem is even worse, since there are close to 20 million people attempting suicide every single year worldwide. To put this in terms easier to comprehend, that's more or less the entire population of Australia trying to kill themselves every year.
Clinical depression signs and symptoms include problems concentrating or remembering details, fatigue and feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness and irritability. Because of these, patients with clinical depression are a very high risk group for suicide(especially when it's a case of clinical depression in women). So much, that depression is the leading cause of suicide in United States. And since clinical depression, 1 out of every 10 people suffering from clinical depression will end up killing themselves.
As you can see suicide is a major threat and if you are depressed you are at very high risk for committing suicide. Even if you feel you'll never commit suicide, it won't matter. When you fall into the suicidal stage of depression, nothing you think now will matter...chances are you won't even remember thinking negatively about suicide, and will instead welcome death.
The clinical depression test is fairly simple...if you feel depressed for long period of time(more than a day) or have any of the symptoms, chances are you have clinical depression.
Clinical depression treatments usually involve anti-depression drugs...however you can't relax your suicide watch even if someone is taking these drugs. Why? Because the first couple of months the person's system hasn't stabilized yet and the drugs aren't effective yet, and afterwards you always run the risk that the person will simply stop taking their medication(thinking they are cured), which will in turn lead to a suicide attempt since there is nothing stopping them from attempting suicide.
Because of this, if you know someone who is depressed(especially if its adolescent clinical depression), you need to make sure to learn all the potential suicide warning signs, so that you can find out when the person is feeling suicidal, so that you can interfere and help save them from taking their own life. If you yourself have some of those symptoms or are just plain depressed, you need to make sure to make a suicide warning signs guide available to people around you, so that they can learn to recognize potential suicidal feelings in you and help save your life. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, don't let yourself make that mistake.
