Hoy, en el día internacional de la prevención del #suicidio recordemos que nuestras acciones siempre tienen consecuencias.

Abro Hilo 🧵 #WSPD
A nuestro alrededor hay mucha gente peleando batallas que no vemos, con las muchas o pocas herramientas que tengan a la mano; y nuestra manera de lidiar con sus contextos (aunque los desconozcamos) puede generar mucho en esas vidas.
Alguien que contempla el suicidio, es una persona que sufre mucho, tanto, que cree que la mejor manera de salir de sus circunstancias es a través de la muerte..

Now that #wspd has passed, I would like for all of us to ask ourselves: how do we treat those suffering with mental illness, addiction, or contemplating suicide?
We encourage people to speak up and ask for help, yet we continue to implicitly shame, blame, and roll our eyes when it comes to the topic of mental health unless it affects us personally.
We design systems where people have to be in their worst possible state before they can access help, and when they tell us they’re thinking about it suicide we use coercive approaches to detain them and lock them in wards that dehumanize them.

~3 yrs ago I lost a dear friend to #suicide, I still cannot speak about it without feeling deep, unfathomable pain, but I know hers must have been unbearably greater.

On #WorldSuicidePreventionDay here's what I shared privately w/ my friends & hope might help others too.

Sharing thread of my thoughts on #WorldSuicidePreventionDay #WSPD #suicidalthoughts_Medical_Emergency what I learnt as Psychiatrist during last 2 decades
1/n Before leaving for hospital, I made my first post on #WorldSuicidePreventionDay as I have strong belief and do practice that #suicidalthoughts_Medical_Emergency
2/n On reaching hospital, saw first patient in emergency who tries to harm herself due to hanging..somehow saved by family member. My first tweet of the day comes into my mind. Patient required admission. Decision was taken to admit for #SuicidePrevention..first step of treatment

Hari Pencegahan Bunuh Diri Sedunia 2020.

Hari ini bukan sebuah hari perayaan. Hari ini adalah hari peringatan. Peringatan bahwa masih ada orang yang menderita dan terbungkam stigma. Peringatan bahwa bunuh diri bisa dicegah jika kita semua bekerjasama. #WSPD #cegahbunuhdiri
Sebuah hari peringatan tidak datang dari kesenangan, ia datang dari perjuangan. Peringatan bahwa masih ada nyawa yg melayang, walau dapat kita perjuangkan utk dicegah. Peringatan bhw kita tidak hendak perpanjang hidup yg menderita, namun mengubah hidup jadi lebih layak dihidupi.
Sebuah hari peringatan tidak datang dari perayaan dan kebahagiaan, ia datang dari keprihatinan dan kesadaran untuk terus menerus berjuang. Peringatan untuk kita semua mengemban tanggungjawab dan peran masing2 demi perubahan yang lebih baik, demi hidup yang layak dihidupi.

So it's #WorldSuicidePreventionDay / #WSPD2019.

Been going back and forth on this one all day.

But seeing the samaritans at the station on my way home from work pushed me over the line I think.

A sign maybe.

I think I'm finally ready to talk about this.

OK. Let's go.
June 5th, 2017 I tried to take my own life.
And I'm sharing this because fuck me this shit is important.

If this saves one life, it's worth it.

If this stops one of you, it's worth it.

If this makes you DM me instead of going for a walk and never coming back, it's worth it.

So yeah. This is hard. But it's time.
