We can state firmly that thoughts of taking your life come from many different individual factors but the bottom line is that the thoughts appear when a person feels that there is no hope, it is seen as the only solution. Thoughts of taking of the life can also appear when stress is completely overwhelming. It is important to realize that there is hope even when the situation seems hopeless, what is important to remember is that the hopelessness is what leads to feeling suicidal. Depression is also closely related to suicide and must be watched very carefully. Are you depressed? Depression can trigger thoughts of taking your own life.

Depressed and stressed out

Stress and Depressed must be taken seriously

Stress and Depressed must be taken seriously

“I am depressed and stressed out”, it is a common complaint in our generation, there are more people using anti depressants than at any other recorded time in US medical history. One group that has seen an incredible boom in depression are college students, a study presented at the American Psychological Association found that the number of students on psychiatric medicines increased more than 10 percentage points over the last 10 years, it is important to know that “depressed and stress” can also lead to deadly consequences.

The rise in college suicides

An area for mental professionals that has been causing much concern are the rising levels of suicides in college, what may be even more alarming are the numbers of students who say they have contemplated suicide. “Suicidal crises are a common occurrence on college campuses,” says Chris Brownson, director of the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center in Austin and one of the study’s researchers

According to Dr. Jerald Kay, a child psychiatrist and chair of psychiatry at Wright State University School of Medicine, we must learn to see the signs.

A lot of the young people I see don’t go to class,” he says. “They’re not able to complete assignments and you get the sense that academically they’re going down in a spiral” and often drop out of extracurricular activities as well, and spend more and more time alone.

The doctor is right but we have also seen many students who are depressed with stress and they still do well in classes, often these students snap and should be watched carefully, good grades does not mean the mental state is healthy.

Depression comes from an inner emptiness, the emptiness manifest in thoughts of giving up or quitting, the ultimate feeling of hopelessness are the thoughts of ending the life. It is very easy to go from stress to depressed and then thoughts of giving up. The overwhelming feeling of giving up is sweeping over much of the Western World. Depression in Europe and the United States are at record levels. If you are depressed and have stress listen to the body and seek help.
