The warning signs of those contemplating suicide

Suicide is rarely a pulse due to an immediate decision. During the days and hours before the suicide, generally appear clues and warning signs.

The strongest signals and detectors of a disorder are verbal ones - "I can not go on like this", "I do not care about anything anymore" or "I'm thinking of ending it." Certain expressions should always be taken seriously.
Other common warning signs include:

- Becoming depressed or withdrawn
- Behaving recklessly
- Put affairs in order and giving away valued possessions
- Showing a marked change in behavior, attitudes or appearance
- Abusing drugs, medicines or alcohol
- To suffer great losses or emotional changes in life
