[Poll] Mental Health and Suicide!
Oct 8, 2010

I know that being mentally ill can create havoc in a person's life; being depressed, suffering from anxiety, and not being able enjoy life. Do you think that suicide is a logical and easy way out for those mentally ill???

NO suicide is not a good way to get out of deppression.
when you suicide you are basically destroying your own life just to get out of a phase of being mentally sad!

you will not only be making your self suffer but also your family and friends. They will all mourn for your death but for what cause?

Suicide is no good

Jordan, I understand your point, but you must feel empathetic for those who are/will go through suicidal actions or thoughts. What caused him/her to think/think about it? Death in the family? Extreme depression?

There are multiple reasons why one will go through with suicide. But I must agree on your opinion. You are throwing your life away, regardless if you think you are useless. NO ONE is useless, you are brought into this world for a reason!

Suicide is not the answer no matter what. Just go talk to a friend or a family member privately and let them relieve your stress.

Looking at the poll results,(currently at time of post) an astounding ~33% thinks about suicide daily, I think that this may reflect a big portion of society's thoughts in real-life. We need to work together and fight against mental illness, which ultimately leads to suicide, et cetera.

Global Mental Health and Self-Stigma in Teens
Nov 24, 2014

Globally mental illness is an issue increasing in prominence. In Canada I am part of a volunteer group that started a campaign that was targeted to youth who are dealing with mental health problems. In this campaign we encouraged them to accept who they are by posting a selfie with a caption that revealed the true self that struggles mentally. This is the campaigns website: http://nyac-selfree.tumblr.com/

I think this was a great way to target youth in Canada because of their attachment to social media outlets such as tumblr, twitter, and facebook. I do not think this is a campaign that would work for every country, especially developing countries.

What are some other ways to fight against mental illness and self stigma in teens across the world?
