How to Notice Suicidal Thoughts

Suicide is the act of someone taking their own life.  Suicide is not a mental illness, but is a consequence of an untreated mental illness.  The types of mental illnesses that can often be the cause of suicidal thoughts are depression, bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, and substance abuse disorders.  These disorders can lead to someone taking their own life if the disorder is not treated properly.
