I just received a text message that another student of Surigao del Sur Polytechnic State College, ROLLY CATAGASAN, has hanged himself.

Rollie was a 4th year BEED student majoring in General Science.

Kamps,


This is so tragic and I hope that will be the last.

I forced myself to believe that what happened wasn't a pattern but a mere coincidence. Ay ay uno sa ini na balita two in a row from Polytechnic College. Kanugon nan ila kinabuhi. Hapit na raba garo mo graduate. Tsk tsk tsk kanugon gayod!:



I hope the info below would give us some light about Suicide.

If someone’s talking about suicide, doesn’t it mean they just want attention and won’t actually hurt themselves?

People who complete suicide have usually indicated their intentions in some way beforehand. It’s essential that any talk of suicide is taken very seriously.

Whether they plan to go ahead with it or not, people who talk about suicide or threaten to kill themselves are often looking for help. They’re generally attempting to communicate the degree of emotional pain that they’re experiencing, and it’s important that they’re able to reach out to someone who will be understanding.

You may not think the issues faced by the suicidal person warrant taking their life, but remember that their experience is different to yours. Try to understand their distress and not dismiss it as attention-seeking or label their behaviours as manipulative.

Isn’t there little warning if a person really intends to suicide?

Most people who plan to suicide do express signs of intent, but these are often not recognised or understood.
Some behavioural warning signs include:

• Talking about suicide
• Making a suicide plan
• Self-harming or prior suicidal behaviour
• Tidying or finalising affairs
• Organising or talking of making a will
• Unexplained crying
• Withdrawal
• Quitting activities that were previously important
• Giving away prized possessions
• Over or uncharacteristic use of alcohol or drugs
• Lack of interest in the future
• Uncharacteristic risk-taking or recklessness (eg driving recklessly)
• Fighting and/or breaking the law

Some physical warning signs include:

• Loss of interest in personal hygiene or appearance
• Loss of physical energy
• Sudden and extreme changes in eating habits; losing or gaining weight
• Major changes to sleeping patterns (too much or too little)
• Loss of interest in sex
• Increase in minor illnesses

If I ask someone if they’re suicidal, won’t I be planting the idea in their head or pushing them towards it?

The only way to really know if a person is contemplating suicide is to ask. Asking someone if they’re feeling suicidal may feel difficult but it shows them that you care. It’s often a relief for a suicidal person to have someone recognise the seriousness of their distress and to be given permission to talk about it. You won’t be doing any harm to ask and it may reduce their risk.

If someone is intent on suicide, isn’t it impossible to stop them?

Suicide is not inevitable and can be prevented. Immediate practical help, such as staying with the person, encouraging them to talk about how they feel and helping them plan for the future can deflect their suicidal intentions in the short-term. This should be followed by professional support to help them in the long-term, complemented by ongoing social support.

If a person has already attempted suicide and survived, doesn’t that mean they’ll never try it again?
A suicide attempt is regarded as a risk factor, and it’s likely that the level of danger will increase with each subsequent attempt. The risk is high for the first three months to a year after an attempt, and then declines but remains throughout the person’s lifetime.
What if someone shows all the warning signs but suddenly seems happy again? Should I still be worried?
If a suicidal person appears to have a sudden unexpected recovery or turnabout in mood, the danger period may not be over. This may actually be a sign that the person has decided to suicide and is feeling resolved and at peace with their plan to end their life.

It’s important to monitor and question any sudden shift or unexpected positive mood change, particularly if the person is finalising affairs or giving away treasured possessions. Seek professional help so that you are not solely responsible.

What makes someone want to take their own life?

People who feel suicidal are experiencing intense emotional pain. They want to stop this pain and see suicide as an answer.
A number of experiences and circumstances increase a person’s risk of suicide. Some examples of high risk factors include:

• Any form of abuse - emotional, physical or sexual, past or present
• Any significant loss
• Relationship breakdown
• Depression or mental illness
• Living in remote areas or in social isolation
• Previous suicide attempts or deliberate self-harm
• Exposure to suicidal behaviour in others, particularly another’s suicidal death
• Parental separation or divorce
• Drug or alcohol abuse
• Homelessness
• Failing grades or dropping out of courses
• Legal or court action
• Financial crises such as job loss, drought, bankruptcy

Everyone’s different, but there are some common thoughts and emotions that people who are suicidal might experience, which often become overwhelming. Some examples of these are:

• Wanting to escape
• Thinking through tunnel vision (without the ability to recognise choices)
• Sadness
• Despair
• Apathy
• Anger
• Distress
• Guilt
• Loneliness
• Hopelessness
• Helplessness
• Worthlessness
• Feeling like a burden to others

Suicidal feelings can be triggered by any life event. The key question is how a person feels about an issue and what meaning it has for the person. The degree of powerlessness, helplessness, hopelessness or worthlessness a person is experiencing affects their level of risk of suicide.

Japan texted me last night that his body will be transported today to his hometown in Agusan del Sur.
