What To Watch For
A person experiencing thoughts of suicide may display the following signs and behaviors:
- Engages in risky behavior
- Talks or writes about death
- Talks about feeling trapped
- Talks about having no purpose
- Threatens to hurt or kill oneself
- Exhibits revenge-seeking behavior
- Attempts to access weapons, medication, or other means of suicide

A person can have suicidal thoughts and never attempt it. However, a person may also attempt suicide after only briefly experiencing suicidal ideations. This is why it is imperative that all threats of suicide be treated seriously.
