Suicidal thoughts—your own or a friend’s—are cause for serious concern. Suicide is the second ranking cause of death for college-age students, and all warning signs must be taken seriously. A person who is suicidal often feels depressed, lonely, and isolated from friends and family. A change in sleep patterns, loss of interest in activities and friends, and changes in lifestyle are some additional indicators of suicidal tendencies. If you find yourself or a friend exhibiting these behaviors, seek help immediately!
