If you’ve had suicidal thoughts, you’re not weak or flawed, and you’re not alone.

Suicide is one of those subjects that many of us feel uncomfortable discussing. If you’re the one feeling suicidal, you may be afraid that you’ll be judged or labeled “crazy” if you open up. Or maybe that no one could possibly understand. It’s not much easier for concerned friends and family members who may hesitate to speak up for fear that they’re wrong or might say the wrong thing.

Suicidal thoughts are not a mental illness as such. However, they point towards an underlying concern which needs to be uncovered and discussed.

The important thing to understand is that feeling suicidal is not a character defect; it only means that the person has more pain than they feel capable of coping with. But help is out there. Talking openly about suicidal thoughts and feelings can save a life. So don’t wait: reach out and walk in or call us today. Our experts have dealt with suicidal patients over many years and have successfully changed their lives.
