Episode #63 - Calgary Real Estate - World Suicide Prevention Day 2010

Today is World Suicide Prevention day! I want to sincerely thank Lee Horbachewski for bringing this day to my attention! I want to help spread some word about suicide so as a result I am not talking about Calgary real estate today.

 

Some of the warning signs that you need to look for from friends or loved ones that might be contemplating suicide:

  • Appearing depressed or sad most of the time.
    (Untreated depression is the number one cause for suicide.)
  • Talking or writing about death or suicide.
  • Withdrawing from family and friends.
  • Feeling hopeless.
  • Feeling helpless.
  • Feeling strong anger or rage.
  • Feeling trapped -- like there is no way out of a situation.
  • Experiencing dramatic mood changes.
  • Abusing drugs or alcohol.
  • Exhibiting a change in personality.
  • Acting impulsively.
  • Losing interest in most activities.
  • Experiencing a change in sleeping habits.
  • Experiencing a change in eating habits.
  • Losing interest in most activities.
  • Performing poorly at work or in school.
  • Giving away prized possessions.
  • Writing a will.
  • Feeling excessive guilt or shame.
  • Acting recklessly.

If you are feeling like this please take care of yourself or your loved one and call the help line in Calgary 403-266-1605 or toll free 1-800-SUICIDE. For more information in Alberta check out Suicide.org or in Calgary specifically Simplee Sereene .
