Transcript

One of the most tragic outcomes of depression can be suicide. People oftentimes think, oh, the world would be better off without me, or I just can't go on anymore. If you're having those thoughts, it's important to immediately seek help from either a mental health professional or your doctor. If you are having current plans of wanting to hurt yourself, go to the emergency room. You can also call a suicide hotline to help you talk about all the things that are going on in your head. But this is not a substitute for therapy or treatment. It can be difficult to have thoughts of suicide or wanting to kill yourself, and it can be even more difficult to deal with them on your own. Find someone to help you deal with those thoughts and hopefully develop a plan to move forward.
