Understanding Suicide: Brody Stevens

List of signals you should look for in others to prevent suicide:

  • Financial Problems
  • Lack of Opportunities
  • Attitude: Disrespectful, Unfocused

  • They report reasons to have difficulty sleeping.

 

Dr Phil on Depression

Depression shouldn’t have a stigma attached to it! It’s as normal as having a broken knee. Many people’s depression are justified by their life circumstances (lose job, divorce, etc.) and in fact if they aren’t depressed it’s actually a sign of denial of their life falling apart.

Better is to help someone work on their life to rebuild it to a better place!
