Dealing with suicidal thoughts and difficult emotions

 

Within Australia, the leading cause of death for people aged 15 to 44 is suicide. Male ex-serving ADF members are at particular risk when compared to civilian men of the same-age. Furthermore, exposure to trauma and violence can increase the risk of psychological distress and PTSD, which are also associated with suicidal ideation.

 

If you are experiencing any of the following, we recommend getting in touch with our team to access appropriate support:

 

  • Thoughts of ending your life, particularly if these thoughts are persistent and intrusive.
  • Severe levels of distress.
  • Severely depressed mood.
  • Persistent and severe anxiety or panic attacks.
  • Nightmares or flashbacks (when you feel or act as if traumatic events are reoccurring)
  • Isolation and withdrawal from friends and family.
  • Difficulties socializing or being in and around crowds.
