Helping every living person. Lewisville ISD Suicide Prevention Curriculum review for HIgh School 9th grade spring lesson. This lesson is a refresher for the information you learned last semester. Due to the sensitive nature of this topic, your counselors are available if you need additional support. Before we begin today’s lesson, let’s refresh what you learned last year. We talked about what depression looks like in teens. Depression is feelings of sadness, hopelessness and despair that persist and interfere with academics, work performance or interpersonal relationships. We also talked about common warning signs to look for that might signal someone is having thoughts of suicide. Some of these signs of adolescent depression include: irritability, overreaction of criticism, problems with authority, indecision or lack of concentration, poor self-esteem, frequent physical complaints. persistent feelings of sadness, a drop in school performance, irritability, overreaction of criticism, problems with authority, persistent feelings of sadness, a drop in school performance, indecision or lack of concentration, poor self-esteem, frequent physical complaints. Last year, we talked about the 3 steps you can use when intervening with someone who might be ask for for suicide. Show you care - listen carefully. I’m concerned about you, about how you feel. Ask the question, be direct but caring and non confrontational. Get help, do not leave him or her alone. You are not alone. Let me help you. You asked, we listened! These are the answers to the questions you all asked the most. What should I do if I encourage a suicidal person to gethelp but they refuse? To someone who is suicidal, depressed or anxious the idea of talking to a doctor or a mental health professional can seem overwhelming. Sometimes suicide seems like the only way to control their pain. Continue to tell them that you are concerned about them and suggest that a professional who understands what they are feeling can help them to feel better. Let them know you are there to listen and offer help finding or getting to a doctor, mental health professional or hospital emergency room. You can also help by staying with them and calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. If you are concerned that the person will hurt themselves, call 911. If a friend confides in me that they are thinking of suicide and makes me promise not to tell, shouldn’t I respect their right to privacy? Privacy is very important, but your friend’s life is even more important. Depression and other mental disorders may be distorting their judgement and leading them to want to hurt themselves. Even if you lose your friendship, saving a life is the most important priority. Tell someone you trust about your friend and ask for assistance getting them to a professional. My friend purposely cuts herself when she is upset. Is this the same as making a suicide attempt? Some people cut or otherwise hurt themselves when they feel overwhelmed by difficult or stressful feelings or to relive their inner tension. Many people who cut themselves never attempt to kill themselves however, in some cases self-harm is the first indication that someone may be at risk for suicidal behavior. Whether or not they feel an impulse to take their own lives, someone who is cutting or otherwise hurting themselves needs help. Health and mental health professionals are trained to determine whether a person is at risk for suicide and to suggest a treatment plan to help them with their self-harm behavior and underlying feelings. Is it true that a person who talks about suicide isn’t really planning to do it? No, that is not true. When someone tells you they are thinking of suicide they are thinking of suicide they are giving you an opportunity to help. All mentions of suicide should be taken seriously. With the combined stressors of work or school, relationships, financial pressures, and family problems, is it normal to feel depressed sometimes? Do we all need mental health treatment? Most of us do have a lot to feel stressed about and it is common to feel depressed sometimes. Someone who is depressed may experience a loss of interest in favorite activities or lack of confidence and low self-esteem. Alos, they may experience a variety of changes in sleep patterns, appetite, energy level, motivation, and concentration. When someone notices changes in some or all of these areas that continues day in and day out for at least 2 weeks, they may be depressed and in need of help. Someone who feels this way may want to seek support by talking to their doctor or a mental health professional about their feelings. There is help and there is hope. What should I do if I experience signs of depression? Look at your resiliency plan. Talk to someone you trust. Make an appointment with your doctor. Ask for someone to help you make an appointment. Remember, these are some resources that can help. If you or someone you know is imminent danger, call 911. Talk to your school counselor. Talk to your coaches, teachers, or youth leaders. Talk to your parents, clergy or friends. Call the crisis telephone hotline. 1-800-273-TALK. 1-800-273-8255. Call the TRevor Lifeline. 1-866-4-U-Trevor. 1-866-488-7386. Visit www.semicolanproject.org.

Some of these changes can seem overwhelming at times and it is to know how to deal with those feelings so you can stay healthy and resilient. A Resiliency and Wellness plan consist of 4 parts.
