Do you now or have you ever felt suicidal?
Many people have, so you are not alone. In this episode, we explore not only why people feel suicidal, but what you can do for yourself when you are feeling like killing yourself.
There is the usual advice to follow, which is to speak to someone. You can call Samaritans on Tel. 116 123. In my opinion, they are one of the most important organisations on the planet. I believe they can help you.
So, what else does this episode offer?
By listening to this episode, you’ll discover six unusual steps that can sow seeds of hope and help you want to stay alive. They’re unusual, because you don’t see them written in many places. Suicide Prevention interventions are often written from the perspective of the mental health professional i.e. what they can do to help someone. This episode takes a new angle by sharing with you directly what you can do for yourself.
They are six steps that work to have a positive effect on what you feel. I don’t mean just feeling good or happy. To be honest, some of these steps are incredibly challenging. It means connecting with feelings that aren’t easy to feel. And, yet, the choice to connect with them, can be something that benefits you immensely.
