suicide isn't the answer
Mental Health

To Whom It May Concern, Suicide Is Real

Problems surrounding mental illnesses, suicide, depression, and anxiety need to be discussed now before its too late.

There is such a stigma around the words suicide, depression, and anxiety that the world is afraid to speak about them. You have those movements when something awful happens, and then all there is is support for something that has always been there.

A famous singer or actor has to die before the conversation will turn to depression, anxiety, or any other mental illnesses. When that happens, the media will post hotlines, beg people to call, and support mental health for a month or two. After that, enough people have gotten over the passing of the individual, and there is no longer any mention of the mental health support. That is not right. Mental health isn’t something that slips away and stays away.

Mental health has always been avoided in discussions for one reason or another. And if it is talked about, it never goes into detail. Mental health is not a forbidden topic. It is real. There are a few people in this world that refuse to believe mental illnesses are real. They think that as long as someone looks “okay” then they are perfectly fine. That is wrong.

They believe that a girl that has been bullied her whole life and killed herself was just overreacting, and it was her fault she died. She needed to get a grip.That boy that beat up a lot and ridiculed needed to learn to take a joke. He read way to much into those people hurting him. It’s his fault he hung himself.

That kid in the back of the class no one knew had depression that was from early childhood. She wasn’t brought up like the other kids. She was addicted to drugs and had an abusive boyfriend. But it was her fault that she took those pills he gave her to make her numb like she wanted.

There are people believe that depression doesn’t exist and that you just had a bad day. You need to get over it they say. Don’t be so sensitive they say. They do not know what they are saying. Then there are those people that seem to glamorize the mental illnesses of the world. They make it seem like every person has it, and that it is not a big deal. Well, it is a big deal.

Depression is not having a bad day then going home and telling your significant other about it. Depression is not being able to get out of bed for a week or more and not having the energy to brush your hair.

Anxiety is not stressing over a test that you knew you had and didn’t study for. Anxiety is having a panic attack when asked to speak in public or make a phone call or stand up in a crowd when your name is called. it is nearly not being able to breathe while debating on throwing an apple core away because you can’t handle people staring at you.

Suicide is not peaceful. Suicide is not wanting to die all the time. It could be not looking at the road before you cross. You don’t care if you get hit. Someone wanting to make the pain go away is not always planning their death. It could be crossing a street without looking, putting yourself in reckless situations.

Suicide does not have to be looking to die. Suicide can be not caring if you do die or not trying to live anymore. People should care about mental health and suicide rates before an attempt is made.

Suicide is not cutting down your arm with a razor, and it being numb as you bleed out on the floor hoping no one comes in and tries to save you. Those people feel that pain. They hurt, and they could have been saved earlier.

It should not take a famous singer hanging himself for the world to see that depression and suicide is real. It should not take the loss of someone great or meaningful for people to see that this won’t stop.

Mental health needs to be talked about now. People should not be ridiculed for going to therapy. People should not have to hide how they feel out of fear of being labeled and mistreated. Life goes on and gets better, no matter how dark it seems.

Things need to change, and they need to change now before it is too late.
