Specialists warn of nearly 800,000-suicide reports globally per year

Washington, Sep 5 (Prensa Latina) Suicide continues to be a social problem nowadays, and mental health specialists warned about behaviors prior to suicide that has forced nearly 800,000 people globally to commit suicide per year.

Michael Roeske, Clinical Psychologist and Senior Director of the Newport Healthcare Center for Research and Innovation, explained that some people maintain a habitual behavior before making the decision to suicide, while others have a way of acting that does not fit to what is normal for them.

Some people give away prized belongings, sleep too little or too much, tend to solitude and drive under influence.

Others even rehearse it, “because many times people need to work to make that real attempt because it is something biological that you have to go against, your own survival,” Roeske stressed.

To Roeske, it’s critical to take it seriously as someone talks about wanting to die, whether by suicide or otherwise.

“If someone is struggling to find a reason to live, that is a much higher risk person,” the expert stressed.

Those who say ¨they no longer need me or would be better off without me¨ reproduce a feeling that they are a burden to their loved ones, they are also at risk for their lives, Roeske explained.

Psychological factors, distressing situations or genetics can increase the likelihood that someone will consider committing suicide.
