It is also one of the most preventable forms of death.Because suicides and nonfatal suicide attempts have direct,profound, costly, and emotionally damaging effects on theentire community, we strive to prevent both by educatingKansas State University community members about suicideprevention strategies.Suicide-risk factors, signs and preventionBy understanding the risk factors and learning how tointeract with someone who may be suicidal, suicide may beprevented. Ninety percent of individuals that complete suicidedemonstrate some type of warning sign they are consideringtaking their own life. Some warning sides include:DepressionThis can include feelings of hopelessness, sleep difficulties,appetite changes, loss of enjoyment in previously enjoyableactivities, and themes of death in conversation or othercommunication-including social media and texts.Suicidal thoughts or comments, such as: “People would be better off without me.”“I can’t live like this anymore.”“I might as well be dead.”“I could do to kill myself.”Increased Alcohol or Substance AbuseSomeone under the influence of alcohol or drugs is at greaterrisk to act on suicidal thoughts.Behavorial CuesBehavioral cues, such as: Purchasing a gun.Stockpiling pills.Giving away money or prized possessions.Dramatic change in behavior.Sudden interest or disinterest in religion.Hopelessness.Rage.Uncontrolled anger, or seeking revenge.Acting reckless or engaging in risky activities, seeminglywithout thinking.Feeling trapped or like there’s no way out.Increased alcohol or drug use.Withdrawing from friends, family, and society.Anxiety, agitation, unable to sleep or sleeping all the time.Dramatic mood changes.Expressing no reason for living or no sense of purpose in life. 7

Prior suicide attemptsIf you observe any of these warning signs in yourself, orsomeone you know, it is crucial you take steps to get help.Asking someone if they are considering suicide DOES NOTincrease risk of them taking action. Research has shown thatonce a person has been asked about suicide, they experiencerelief, not distress. Once the question has been asked, fullyLISTEN to what that person has to say and take steps topersuade them to get help. You may ask the individual any ofthe following: Will you go with me to see a counselor? Will you let me help you make an appointment with acounselor/doctor/etc.?If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts ofsuicide, consult with a mental health professional.
