Suicide Prevention

Written by: Gloria Giménez

Suicide is a major problem within psychiatry, a drama within the family and an act of despair and no possibility of seeing other outputs decided by the person.

Our "free will" is the ability to be free to decide, but how do we know if it is a decision that we would take in the same way if they gave us time to reconsider? In the majority of patients who have been put in treatment and have managed to save their lives after a failed attempt, they recognize that they did not want to die, but that it was the only possible way out at that time.. Many depressions treated adequately avoid that risk.

The causes are psychopathological-biological-personality traits, psychosocial and family. In the literature we have great stories that suggest suicide as a vital outlet not lacking in romanticism, but in some biographical cases, we can analyze in the present that corresponded to major or bipolar Depressions , which currently and conveniently treated might give other options and others decision possibilities.

In the case of adolescents, attempts at autolysis can be impulsive behaviors or calls for attention that have sometimes been "exposed" in a more or less obvious way to family members, but they have not been given the appropriate importance. In our consultation we find that the patient speaks of self-injury that in most cases, parents do not hear about it. Psychotherapy with family intervention and the administration of guidelines can help prevention.

If we take into account that 9 out of 10 cases of suicide have a history of suffering psychological suffering , it gives us a lot to think about the reason for wanting to stop existing. Currently social desperation has increased and has led to a greater number of attempts and some fatal outcome, so the role of society on the meaning of existence also plays a role that we must not forget .
