Transgender Suicide

I know many of you would rather avoid the subject altogether, but please read the following you may just save the life of someone you know.

A recent survey of over 7000 transgender in the United States showed that a staggering 41 percent have attempted to commit suicide. The National suicide rate is 3 per 100,000 people (or .003%). The transgender/transsexual suicide rate is 31%. To put this in perspective, if these statistics hold true for our little population who attended Viva this year, 49 of them either attempted suicide or will attempt suicide and 37 of those will succeed. So what can we do as individuals to reduce these numbers? Learn to recognize the risk factors and tell tale signs of suicide, and then follow the guidelines listed at the end of this article.

Recognizing Signs of Suicide

It is often difficult to determine whether a person is on a path toward suicide. Those who have never had thoughts of suicide are likely to underestimate a sufferer’s ability to end their life. However, it is vital to remember that suicide victims have extreme feelings of worthlessness and depression. They may feel unloved or alone. Thus, it is more difficult for them to deal with problems or envision a solution to their problems. Even more so, family and friends should pay attention to tell-tale signs of suicide. Signs may be subtle or obvious. The key is recognizing them, and offering much needed support. Everyone experiences some degree of depression during their life. In some cases, depression may lasts for several days or weeks. Of course, not everyone who experiences the “blues” will commit suicide. Warning signs for suicide include:

Depression
Anger
Isolation
Insomnia
Change in Eating Habits
Giving Away Valued Items
Preoccupation with Death
Expressing Suicidal Thoughts (drawing, writings, songs)
Substance Abuse
Sudden Change in Behavior

What Should You do if You Suspect Someone is Suicidal?

It may help to directly ask a person if they are thinking about suicide, or if they have ever thought about ending their life. If the answer is yes, the listener may ask additional questions and inquire about the reason(s) behind suicidal feelings. Have they talked to anyone about their feelings? What can the listener do to help? How do they plan to kill themselves?
When addressing this issue it is essential for the listener to speak in a serious, but calm manner. If the listener is smiling or laughing, the victim is less likely to provide serious answers. Suicide is no joking matter. If a victim is willing to openly communicate about their feelings, the listener should use this as an opportunity to offer support. Individuals who are in the early stages of contemplating suicide may be encouraged to seek counseling.
If the person does not agree to counseling, the listener could serve as a continual support system offering encouragement, support, and love. Nonetheless, a listener is not a psychiatrist. Therefore, listeners should continually encourage counseling or speak with another trusted adult such as a victim’s parent or spouse.

Remember, watch for the signs, ask the questions, and really really listen.

Jackie_Star Joe> Thank you for posting this. People need to understand that suicide is about pain and suffering, NOT!!! about attention getting. Suicide is a cry for HELP!!!!

I am a retired law enforcement officer trained in suicide prevention and I attempted to take my life 5 times and what happened when I posted my suicidal intent on the WildSide ? I was accused of attention getting, told to stop posting ( not by the admin btw ) and I had so called Wildside friends walk away from me.

  As sad as this sound, suicide is and always will be a part of the transgender community and we need to understand it, stop judging and help each other get through it.

Jackie_Star BTW> I also think WildSide should have a link on the main page for someone who maybe in a suicidal emergency to get help.

MichelleB67 Many issues in the Transgendered Community is we have too many folks who cry the victim, and therefore folks tire of it, and then don't recognize the ones who really need help. Many of us need to pull our socks up, stop crying the victim so we can see the people who really need the help. For our own reference,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Boy_Who_Cried_Wolf

Jackie_Star "Cry the victim" "pull our socks up" That's the kind of thinking that gets people killed. You have no idea what that person maybe going through. It took 3 years and a lot of surgery's before my suicidal tendencies started to dissipate.

Again!!! suicide is about pain and suffering, if they are coming on this site and showing suicidal intent they may just be looking for help. So help them and NEVER!!! EVER!!! tell them they are crying the victim or to pull their sucks up. I don't know about you but I would rather listen to someone tell me their problem then to see that person kill them self.

suicide is and always will be a part of the transgender community and we need to understand it, STOP!!! JUDGING!!! and help each other get through it.

Jackie_Star "The Boy Who Cried Wolf"

What do you think would have happened to the boy if the people in the village continued to come out and help the boy ???

Answer: The boy would not be dead.

How do you think the village felt when they did not help the boy and he was killed ???

Answer: Probable like SH*T

We need to learn to show companion for others.

Jackie_Star Myth: Someone making suicidal threats won’t really do it, they are just looking for attention.

Fact: Those who talk about suicide or express thoughts about wanting to die, are at risk for suicide and need your attention. Most people who die by suicide give some indication or warning. Take all threats of suicide seriously. Even if you think they are just “crying for help”—a cry for help, is a cry for help—so help.

MichelleB67 Jackie, you assume I am commenting about you, and not looking close enough to what I said. We need to be able to see the folks who really need the help and help them. For the folks who cry victim, I'm sure they know who they are, they need to pull up their socks. What's wrong with telling people to pull it together and be honest? Fuck the bullshit of being politically correct. right?
