Teenagers Suicide in India

Puberty is the period of rapid physical, mental, and social changes that occurs in teenagers between the ages of 11 and 13. For teenagers, these years of considerable transition can be rather perplexing, resulting in restlessness and moodiness. Deep emotional changes and physical development can be a source of emotional distress for many children, making them prone to temptations and poor judgments. While this is a difficult time for the child, it also marks the beginning of an usual chasm between the youngster and his or her parents, leaving no place for the child to overcome or talk about the stresses they are under or the feelings they are experiencing.
Teenagers may believe that no one, particularly their parents, understands their feelings. As a result, they are enraged, alone, and perplexed as they deal with complex concerns such as identity, peers, sexual behaviour, career, studies, drinking, and drug usage. Families are usually successful in assisting their children in achieving their developmental goals during the teen years. However, there are a few warning signs that things aren’t going well that should be addressed and identified early so that outside assistance can be sought.
At this age, adolescents and young adults begin to think and feel differently. They are perplexed by their situation, which places them in a strange middle ground between being children and fully grown adults. They are feeling lonely and uneasy. Unfortunately, some people may assume that suicide is a permanent solution to problems that may be discussed and treated with the correct advice. Adolescents might pay a significant price for self-doubt, disorientation, and demands to succeed or conform.
They are linked to feelings of befuddlement, grief, rage, concentration and hyperactivity issues, stress, self-doubt, pressure to succeed, financial insecurity, disappointment, and loss.
There are a number of warning signs or symptoms that reflect the seriousness of the situation:

Helplessness is expressed in a variety of ways.
• Loss of faith and hopelessness
• Shame or remorse that is unbearably strong.
• Significant shift in one’s personality or physical appearance
• Behaviour that is unreasonable or strange.
• Eating habits had shifted
• Sleeping patterns that are irregular.
• A drop in grades or productivity at work.
• Loss of interest in formerly significant matters
• Suicide is discussed through writing, speech, and humour.
• Drinking and drug abuse are on the rise.
• Separating oneself from friends, family, and society.

There are numerous causes that can devote or build-up to the final result of suicide:

• Impulses that are out of control.
• There has been a history of suicide attempts in the family.
• There was already a suicide plan in place.
• Harsh or obnoxious behaviour
• Domestic violence is an example of exposure to violence.
• Access to firearms, such as a firearm at home
• Bullying.
• Acute rejection or loss.
• There have been changes in their families.
• Workplace anxiety
• Abuse, whether physical or sexual

Mental health disorders that can lead to suicides are:

• Mental illness and the LGBTQ community

While we are occupied with our work, a suicide is taking place. These individuals require assistance, love, inspiration, and understanding. WE have the capacity to stop the threat and create an environment where people who are at risk of suicide can speak honestly, express their thoughts, and discuss their issues. They just need someone to reassure them that everything will be fine. Simply do your bit, listen to them, and assist them in avoiding terrible measures such as suicide. Life is a gift, and we may enjoy it to the fullest while also helping to save the lives of those who do not have the same opportunity. Problems aren’t the end of the world; they can be solved and dealt with, and ending your life isn’t the answer. It is not a viable solution to burn our life book. Ask for support and speak up about your concerns because we weren’t born to be quitters. If you live a life that uplifts you, you will one day look back and be proud of how far you have gone.
