“They can also be talking about death or dying but not just in a joking way, or liking things on social media that are related to it”, she points out.

Nicole Rodriguez, also Psychotherapist, notes that cutting is another sign that they are planning to commit suicide. She recommends to be aware of what your kids are wearing because they will always find the way to hide when they are cutting themselves.
