Long-Term Help: Understanding Suicidal Thoughts

Even when you are not in the midst of a severe mental health crisis, you may find yourself experiencing suicidal thoughts. While the thoughts themselves are certainly scary, understanding their source may help with managing and decreasing them long term. The following are some common sources of suicidal thoughts:

• Sexual assault

Abuse, manipulation, cruelty, or other attacks on your self-worth

• Severe mental illness, especially depression (or mental health issues that have gone untreated or unmedicated for long periods of time)

• Neglect, rejection or abandonment

• Guilt or shame

It's important that you do whatever you can to get help as soon as possible if you see any signs of abandonment in your relationships.

Truth for right now.

Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses.  Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make.  Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!  You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him.  This is the key to your life.  Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (The Bible)
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 (The Bible)
But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying, "You are my God!"  My future is in your hands.  Rescue me from those who hunt me down relentlessly.  Let your favor shine on your servant.  In your unfailing love, rescue me.  Psalm 31:14-16 (The Bible)

You aren't alone.

Hold On

Suicidal thoughts and feelings – even when they seem very intense – are still just thoughts and feelings. They can be better understood. They can be managed and treated. And they can lessen their hold on our hearts and minds. Don’t give up now. You can experience a full and abundant life.

The most important thing you can do is REACH OUT!

The bottom line is every suicidal person feels hopeless. They are hurting so badly and want nothing more than for the pain to end. Unfortunately, they cannot imagine the pain ever going away. They cannot see the light at the end of the very dark and lonely tunnel they have found themselves traveling down.  We are asking you to trust Us when we say: THERE IS HOPE!
