Understanding Suicide: Brody Stevens

We use Brody Steven’s recent suicide on 2/22/19 as an opportunity to discuss what causes suicide using his tragedy as an example.
My condolences to him and his family during this difficult time.
I hope we can prevent future suicide with the knowledge gained from this video

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

  • Career Difficulties
  • Significantly less successful than peers
  • Anger towards people who prevent their success. Anger towards people who are judgmental towards them (an inability to let it go and move on).
  • Financial Problems
  • Lack of Opportunities
  • Attitude: Disrespectful, Unfocused
  • They say “I could use some therapy”
  • They report reasons to have difficulty sleeping.
