Frustration

Suicidal thoughts and actions often occur because someone feels like there is no way out of a current situation, no matter how fleeting it actually is.

While many people who attempt to die by suicide are depressed, simply being frustrated with a certain life situation can be enough to cause suicidal behavior.

Relationship issues, job loss, money issues or lingering physical or mental health conditions can all lead to frustration that — if prolonged — can spiral downward into negative self-image and thoughts.

No matter how dire a situation seems, it is important for people to realize that it is only temporary and that there are always other solutions available other than suicide, no matter how helpless or hopeless a person feels in that very moment.
