What is it?

Suicide or thoughts of taking your own life, is a tragic reaction to stressful life situations. It may seem like there is no way to solve the problems, feel hopeless, helpless and that suicide is the only way to end the pain. But you can take steps to stay safe — and start enjoying your life again.


Warning signs aren't always obvious, and they may vary from person to person. Some people make their intentions clear, while others keep suicidal thoughts and feelings secret.
