Patient discussion about suicidal

Q. SUICIDE what is suicidal behavior/is it a psychiatric disorders?

A. Thank you also from me Lixurion. You make a huge difference in our lives.

Q. Should they still be having suicidal thoughts? Hi there, if someone who has been diagnosed as a rapid - cycling bipolar is on Epival, should they still be having suicidal thoughts and is there anything else that could be added in terms of medication to stabilize them?

A. Seek help right away when suicidal thoughts begin to creep in. It is important to pay attention to them right at the beginning and seek help right away so they dont get too bad. Like the others said there are a lot of medications that can be very helpful. My partner is also a rapid cycler and is on and antidepressant, a mood stabilizer, an anti psychotic and an anti anxiety medication which is working well/ However like the rest she needs enough sleep and enough excercise to keep her stable

Q. How do I know if someone’s planning to commit suicide? A guy I know is acting weird lately…saying some scary stuff about dying. How can I know he is not joking? And how can I stop him?

A. it shouldn't be your goal to stop him or prevent him as you say. you can't be with this individual 24/7.. if you are there for him and give him your ear to listen it will go much farther to prevent him than nething else you could do. as we learn in the psych field a very simple, effective way to discern suicidal intent is to talk w/ them and in the course of the conversation look right at them and say "it sounds like you're thinking about killing yourself". don't hesitate to call a healthcare professional to explain the situation. you don't have to give your name or his name for them to give u advice
