Teen Suicide Prevention


Like madness, suicide is a theme that links Hamlet and Ophelia and shapes the concerns of the play more generally. Hamlet thinks deeply about it, and perhaps "contemplates" it in the more popular sense; Ophelia perhaps commits it.

Rihanna - Suicide Lyrics

You are not alone!


Depression is not simply a temporary change in mood or a sign of weakness. It is a real medical condition with many emotional, physical, behavioural and cognitivesymptoms.

“When you feel like giving up, just remember the reason why you held on for so long.” – Unknown


Bullying is a major problem in alot of school in Canada. "Bully-related suicide can be connected to any type of bullying, including physical bullying, emotional bullying, cyberbullying, and sexting, or circulating suggestive or nude photos or messages about a person."

Things to do

  • Take all talk or threats of suicide seriously. Don’t tell the person they are wrong or that they have a lot to live for. Instead, get them immediate medical help.
  • Keep weapons and medications away from anyone who is at risk for suicide. Get these items out of the house or at least securely locked up.
  • Parents should encourage their teens to talk about bullying that takes place. It may be embarrassing for kids to admit they are the victims of bullying, and most kids don’t want to admit they have been involved in bullying. Tell victims that it’s not their fault that they are being bullied and show them love and support. Get them professional help if the bullying is serious.

“Suicide doesn’t end the chances of life getting worse, it eliminates the possibility of it ever getting any better.” – Unknown

How To Avoid Depression And Suicidal Thoughts After A Breakup:

1) Voice your feelings to someone close. Avoid bottling up your emotions.

3) Avoid wallowing.

4) Throw away all photographs and mementos of being together.

5) If there was a ring involved, give it back.

6) Read about current affairs. You will understand how many people are suffering all over the world. Your heartbreak will sound petty when you compare those suffering from famines, floods and terrorist bombings.

7) Focus your mind on your career.

Get involved in family matters and look after those who need your support.

9) Take part in a charity drive.

10) Don’t hate all men/women because you had fallout with one man/woman.
