Suicide Awareness

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 13, 2014, 6:31 AM


This is not normally a topic I cover, nor will I cover in depth unless what I suspect might happen comes to pass. I have a strong feeling, based off of observed behaviors from several people around me, that this winter will have a rather high number of suicides. I don't know what's going on, but I do know that economic and social factors are in play. While I'm in love with this time of the year out here in the North West; I can definitely understand why other people respond to the lower light levels differently.

This is just a generic warning to people that still read my journals. Keep a close eye on the people around you and respond quickly to any signs of severe depression and dialogue containing any words of self destruction. If you want more info, go check out the suicide prevention info at www.helpguide.org/articles/sui… .

I suspect the severe economic conditions we're experiencing in the US at this time is contributing to some of this talk I'm hearing from people. And yes, the economy is bad, real bad, no matter what the manipulated numbers say. Several people I know are either laid off, can't find permanent work other than seasonal help, and/or are working two jobs due to hour cuts.

Last winter, there were quite a few suicides of people I at know of or talked online with, if not met in person. Not to forget this last February, had a few co-workers that came close (however both made immediate changes to their life to address the issue and they left the company).

I'm just saying that I've already had to intervene twice this month, and its starting to put me on edge. I think this is going to be a bad winter.

It doesn't have a definite form, but most artists have a variation on this: semc.deviantart.com/art/Sage-B…
And a few change one of the notes to a light green fav.me/d4me8sq
