According to Ulifeline.org, suicide is “the act of deliberately taking one’s own life.” Suicide is also the second leading cause of death among college students. Suicide is a very serious subject and is preventable. The following are some of the warning signs of suicide: talking about wanting to die or kill oneself, talking about feeling hopeless or no reason to live, increasing the use of alcohol and/or other drugs, anxiety, agitation, sleeping too little or too much, showing rage, extreme mood swings, and others. Most people that attempt/commit suicide have an underlying mental health concern such as depression, anxiety, or substance dependence. If you or someone you know is experiencing some of these symptoms, Mountwest is here to help!
