3 youngsters, Kanheri Village, Fatehabad, Haryana took their life by lying down the railway track this morning police suspected of suicide as according to the investigation. Three friends were really disturbed from the past week, can judge from their Facebook status and whatsapp profile pic. It also came in the limelight that they are best friends.
Being a Mental Health Professional, this incidence shocked by head with a bang. Why?
Maybe it is an internal conflict, maybe due to financial burden, love relationship problems, studies fluctuations, interpersonal misunderstandings or substance abuse.
There are many things that come in mind, whenever we think about the reason. It can be one I listed or not!
Police are investigating. My purpose is to aware and prevent such losses of life and happiness.
Suggestions for Parents: As a parent, you should give shoulders to your kid every time he/she feels disturbed. Give them trust and space to share things. Your sudden behaviour sometimes disturbs them. Try to be calm, help them and maintain a positive relationship.
Adolescence is an age where child can decide what is good and bad, he is being enough to decide. You just need to be a good advisor, not a judge. Advice is given on request, judgment is embedded forcefully. Know what you need to do?
Secondly, I want every parent to look upon the child social media updates and ask explanations calmly. Sometimes the person in the problem just needs somebody around to be heard. Be their Support!
Suggestions for Youngsters: Friendship is important is always imparts being together, but if togetherness demand life or any antisocial act then it is big NO!
There were many situations when you feel helpless, but taking permanent decision for temporary things is catastrophic.
Maybe you can’t handle but if you hear! Nothing will go right!
Moreover, try to convince your friends to give a chance to live, be supportive in handling rather than making decisions to advise them to involve elders. As an adult, we should always look for signs among our colleagues. We should never ignore and laughing someone saying continuously about suicide and being fed up.
Suicide victims never decide in moment! It always a planned one!
Listen to their feelings and help !!
