How Do I Get my Mom to Stop Fighting with Me?

From a teen in the U.S.: My dad sometimes goes to trips outside the state so it’s just me and my mom. I’ve always noticed that if she can’t see something, she doesn’t believe in it. So when I tell her a problem that she can’t see, she ignores it. Like my severe back problem, my continuous cold, my headaches, sudden pain in the body, etc. I do everything for her. Everything she asks for I do it. I care for her when she’s ill. I wish that she showed me such love. Recently, my mom had bought me sho...

I Keep Getting Thoughts & Visions about Killing People

This has been going on for 3-4 months now. I keep getting visions and thoughts about killing people and I have no clue why. When I get these I feel a rush and it makes me feel good. I know this makes me sound crazy. I even get thoughts about killing family members not just random people. Please help me out. If I could interview you, I would want to know what is happening in your life. Did something change? Are you feeling stressed and anxious or upset about anything in particular? Are you a vict...

Perfectionism is on the rise – and we're all paying the cost

A study of 41,641 college students shows that perfectionism is increasing year after year.Along with perfectionist tendencies, researchers noted a symmetrical rise in anxiety, depression, and suicide.

None Should we really be surprised by a study entitled, "Perfectionism Is Increasing Over Time?" Though written in 2017, this research from Thomas Curran and Andrew P. Hill was recently...

Homicidal Thoughts & Ideations Are Becoming Intrusive & Common

I know the site has many articles on this but I feel like it may be different somehow. I have had homicidal thoughts from a young age, I am 14 now, but just about two months ago they started to become very common and sometimes intrusive, or at least more than before. I was hospitalized for suicide attempts and excessive self-harm in March so some people think this may be the cause of it. These thoughts are not disturbing to me, rather I enjoy them. I think of things like abusing people, what it ...

Common Signs of Someone Who May Be Suicidal

About 70 percent of people who commit suicide give some sort of verbal or nonverbal clue about their intention to end their life. That means you could be in a position to guide someone to get help before they commit the one action that can never be taken back. While 30,000 Americans die each year due to suicide, more than 800,000 Americans attempt suicide. Although women attempt suicide three times as often as men, men are four times more likely to be successful in their attempt. Warning signs...

I’m Not Sure if What I’m Experiencing Is Considered Normal

Hello, just to give some background, I’ve self-harmed and have gone to the hospital because of my injuries before. Ever since I was very young I’ve had strong urges to harm living things and even myself. I seem to like all things involving pain harm and blood. I’ve harmed myself several times in the past but not usually for suicidal tendencies but for fun, I try my best not to anymore. The thing that also concerns me is the fact I have terrible nightmares and very long and strange dreams/nightma...

Consumed by Certain Fantasies and Lack of Empathy

Recently I have been consumed by certain fantasies and lack of empathy. When I see people in the street I wonder what it would be like to kill them(mostly out of boredom), and I have thought of ways I would do it – I’m particularly intrigued by poison or psychologically engineering a suicide because it’s quite passive(not violent/bloody). However, I don’t think I would ever do anything to hurt anyone, to be honest, I think 1) out of laziness and 2) I would want to be 100% sure I would get away w...

How Should Managers Deal With Workplace Suicides?

Bad things do happen and managers need to know how to deal with them Image Credit: pieter musterd So let’s face it. Talking about someone ending their own life is never a pleasant discussion.

How Do I Deal with Boyfriend’s Problems?

From the U.S.: I have been with my partner (that’s just what I’ll call him, we’re too emotionally attached to just say friend at this point), for about ten years now. We basically grew together, and have been through a lot. Throughout the years, he has decided to leave (about 3 times over the span of ten years) without really giving any reason why. He just kind of ghosted. When I was younger, this would drive me crazy. I would feel dead inside. I was really attached. Every time it hurt. He had c...

Does ’13 Reasons Why’ Increase Suicide Rates?

Conflicting research released last month gave us a very unclear answer about whether simply watching or being exposed to a television show about teen suicide — Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why (13RW) — results in an increase in actual teen suicide in real life. One study found a correlation (not a causal relationship) between the two, while another study found declines in suicidal thoughts and self-harm behaviors. So what’s the real story? 13 Reasons Why is a Netflix television series that explores t...

Guideposts for Surviving a Loved One’s Suicide

We don’t have conversations about the power and beauty of this crucible in our culture, as we tend to squash down negative feelings and push ourselves to get back to work. That moment.

Mental Health experts to hold frank conversation about suicide at Soka University

The trajectory of Alison Malmon’s life changed on March 24, 2000 — the day her brother, Brian, took his life at age 22.
