Suicide Solution Essay
Suicide.....a serious problem that has no blanket solution. The
basis of this essay is to write about the solution to a problem. In my
case, the “problem” is suicide...and in suicide there is no real
“solution”. There are many ways to help one who is suicidal, and
different precautions, such as: hotlines, counseling, and programs.
Medications that you can prescribe to them also can help. Other than
that, it’s pretty much up to your love and support to keep them alive.
Some hotlines, and web sites that help with people are
Counselors Counseling, Teen Suicide Help, and there are many
others that exist. These people who work for these hotlines, and the
counselors out there are educated to help people who are suffering
from deep depression, and suicide. They don’t even have to be
suicidal...they might just have deep depression, and since that is one
of the main causes of suicide, they are there to help them cope with
their depression so that in the future they don’t have to see suicide.
The certain web sites that are out there supply people with lots of facts
and information about suicide itself. It tells them the causes and
effects, and also how to get the strength to realize you have a
problem, and to reach out for help.
A couple of the medications that are prescribed to patients by
doctors and psychologists are prozac, and serzone. Prozac has had
over 9 years of experience worldwide, and over 7 years in the U.S.. It
is prescribed for over 16 million patients worldwide, approved in over
75 countries, one of the world’s most thoroughly studied medicines,
and is indicated for the treatment of depression. Serzone
(scientifically known as nefazodone HCI) causes you to feel less blue,
and more like yourself, feeling less anxious, getting a good night’s
sleep, feeling more calm, more in control, less “jittery”, being able to
concentrate, and having more interest in more activities. In many
cases being on these certain medications has helped lots of people to
overcome their sickness, and get on with their lives.
The third, and final “solution” for suicide is basically the love and
support from family and friends. Usually when people are this
depressed, it is because they are feeling pain. They have lost
someone, or feel lost themselves. Being ignored, unloved, being
forgotten or being left out...these are all possible reasons for a person
to become suicidal. They just need to know that their life is worth
living, and that there are people out there who love and care about
them, and who want them to stay alive.
In conclusion, there are many ways of treating and helping with
suicide, but there is no solution. Every person is different, therefore
every suicide case is going to be different, with different needs, and
different causes. If I could tell you a solution to solve suicide, and put
an end to it I would be one of the most famous people in the world. I
can tell you the ways to help reduce the numbers of people who
commit suicide each year. That itself is solution enough. Watch
every move you make, and every word you say. Be nice to others,
and show them you love them. For instance, you’re walking down the
halls when you see someone that looks stressed out and depressed.
Then as you walk by them, they drop their books. You stop to help
them pick them up and just talk to them, and say hi. Who knows, you
might be doing more than picking up their books...you could be saving
