    “The first noble truth of the Buddha is that when we feel suffering, it doesn’t mean that something is wrong. What a relief. Finally somebody told the truth. Suffering is part of life, and we don’t have to feel it’s happening because we personally made the wrong move.”

    Re: Suicide Prevention Quotes

    I'd called all the hospitals and said "Give me the most suicidal, the person who's tried to kill themselves multiple times and all of that.

    They came in, and what I discovered was that these people had so many problems. They were such an ever changing set of problems, so that one day it was one thing, and another day another. If you worked on one problem, another problem was more intolerable. You try to work on that problem and the person says, "Well, I'm going to kill myself, this is all hopeless."

    What happened was, I discovered that, if you have a lot of problems, you can't work on all problems simultaneously, so you really have to radically accept some set of problems to work on something out. But I had no technology, I had no way. That was not part of behavior therapy. Acceptance, when I started, was simply not part of the treatment.

    Re: Suicide Prevention Quotes

    "In adult life, people generally tend to relive rather than live, that is, to repeat the patterns of the past...They are afraid that if they really cry out, if they really ask, if they really scream for help, that it won't come, and they'll be in the same panicky frightened state they were in when they were little."

    Re: Suicide Prevention Quotes

    Suicidal behaviors are a psychiatric emergency. If you or a loved one starts to take any of these steps, seek immediate help from a health care provider or call 911:

    - Collecting and saving pills or buying a weapon
    - Giving away possessions
    - Tying up loose ends, like organizing personal papers or paying off debts
    - Saying goodbye to friends and family

    If you are unsure, a licensed mental health professional can help assess.

    If your friend or family member struggles with suicidal ideation day-to-day, let them know that they can talk with you about what they're going through. Make sure that you adopt an open and compassionate mindset when they're talking. Instead of "arguing" or trying to disprove any negative statements they make ("Your life isn't that bad!"), try active listening techniques such as reflecting their feelings and summarizing their thoughts. This can help your loved one feel heard and validated.

    Let them know that mental health professionals are trained to help people understand their feelings and improve mental wellness and resiliency. Psychotherapy, like cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, can help a person with thoughts of suicide recognize ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior, validate their feelings and learn coping skills. Suicidal thoughts are a symptom, just like any other - they can be treated, and they can improve over time.

    Suicide is not the answer. There is hope.

    Why Your Life Matters: A Note to Suicidal Teens

    Stay away from other kids who feel equally hopeless.That includes young people online who feel as bad as you do. Constantly talking about how awful life is may feel good in the moment, but in the end it will only make you all feel worse. People who don't know how to help themselves won't know how to help you. If you want to help them, by all means tell them you care and then give them the link to this article.
