There's many teens who struggle with mental illness in this world. Whether that's depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and many more. Many people can tell or know how these things can affect someone mentally but these things can also affect them physically.
“Suicide can be carried out using various methods, common methods include overdosing on drugs or alcohol, jumping from a great height, slitting one’s wrists, vehicular impact, electrocution, and drowning.” (Suicide)
“Most suicidal individuals give warning signs or signals of their intention to kill themselves. Warning signs can include changes in the individual’s mood, sleep patterns, or diet; an increase in the individual’s alcohol and/or drug use; and the individual expressing a desire to die.” (Suicide)
It can be hard for some teens to go through hard times like these. Which is why we should always be aware of others and treat people with care because you may never know what may be wrong with them.
It's sad to even think about people going through such a hard time like this to the point where they don't even want to live anymore.
If a loved one or even you are showing these signs get help immediately because as time goes on it will only get worse and if you don't get help soon enough then you may lose you or someone you love.
