10 tips for dealing with suicidal thoughts

Mental Health & Illness Musings from Molly

Molly Spomer was previously a patient at West Springs Hospital and then became a valued staff member. She recently moved on from her position here, but continues to blog here regularly about life and dealing with mental illness from her insider perspective.

As sensitive as it might be and as vulnerable as it makes me feel, I want to talk about having suicidal thoughts. As someone who has struggled with them since I was 17 (I’m almost 23 now), I have thought of many ways to deal with thoughts of suicide.

I will not pretend that I have it all figured out or that I don’t still struggle to where I crumble – there are days I feel entirely broken. I do not want to try and sugar coat this topic, or try to give anyone the idea that one thing should work for all because that is not true. Everyone struggles and handles things in their own way,  I just hope that I can help someone not feel so alone.
