An unpleasant topic, but one that is important to address. Going through a divorce is stressful. It is extremely common for people to become depressed over a divorce, and untreated depression is the number one cause for suicide. If you are going through a divorce, you need to get a strong support network in place.

Don’t shy away from confronting suicide. People believe that mentioning it might make a person start thinking about it. Researchers tell us there’s little risk of that. The quickest and most decisive way to deal with a risk of suicide is to ask about it and talk about it — directly.

Be proactive, consider therapy. Beginning therapy can be a big step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible—no matter what challenges you may be facing. Through therapy, you can change self-destructive behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more.

You are not alone in facing life’s problems; many people are experiencing similar pains, difficulties, and worries, and many people are getting help and growing through therapy. Mental health concerns affect millions of people throughout the world and help is available.
