People with severe depression are susceptible to the same fate with Chester Bennington, namely suicide. Therefore we must be good at seeing the signs of the nearest person being depressed and planning a suicide.
“We can see the normal signs,” said Dr. Sylvia Detri Elvira SpKJ from Psychiatric Clinic Psychiatry Department RSCM, Jakarta, told Health Liputan6.com, June 24, 2017.
Signs of people who are depressed, Sylvia said, can be seen from the complaints that he experienced. “It’s usually sad all the time, I do not want to do anything, feel life is useless, and feel that he’s no longer meaningful,” he added.
If the signs have come up, the next thing we rarely realize is that the person with the depression will give some sort of “code” that he is planning to kill him. Either that intention will be done by hanging himself, drinking poison, or crashing into the train.
“Normally I would like to blow it out, basically aware that he said, ‘If dead people use it, how?’ He asked like that is not meant to show off, because basically he will kill himself silently, “said Sylvia.
When we realize that our nearest person will commit suicide, we can prevent him from immediately taking him to a psychiatrist.
“Depression can be treated, healed,” he emphasized.
