For Su***de Prevention month, the second step for #BeThe1To, is #BeThere. If someone you know is thinking about su***de, take the next step and #BeThe1To be there. Listen to their reasons for feeling hopeless and in pain. Listen without judgment and with compassion and empathy. #BeThere #SPM21

How – This could mean being physically present for someone, speaking with them on the phone when you can, or any other way that shows support for the person at risk. An important aspect of this step is to make sure you follow through with the ways in which you say you’ll be able to support the person – graphic be the one to be theredo not commit to anything you are not willing or able to accomplish. If you are unable to be physically present with someone with thoughts of su***de, talk with them to develop some ideas for others who might be able to help as well (again, only others who are willing, able, and appropriate to be there). Listening is again very important during this step – find out what and who they believe will be the most effective sources of help.

Why – Being there for someone with thoughts of su***de is life-saving. Increasing someone’s connectedness to others and limiting their isolation (both in the short and long-term) has shown to be a protective factor against su***de. Thomas Joiner’s Interpersonal-Psychological Theory of Su***de highlights connectedness as one of its main components – specifically, a low sense of belonging. When someone experiences this state, paired with perceived burdonsomeness (arguably tied to “connectedness” through isolating behaviors and lack of a sense of purpose) and acquired capability (a lowered fear of death and habituated experiences of violence), their risk can become severely elevated.

By “being there,” we have a chance to alleviate or eliminate some of these significant factor

September is National Su***de Prevention Month so let's start with #BeThe1To Ask. How – Asking the question “Are you thinking about su***de?” communicates that you’re open to speaking about su***de in a non-judgmental and supportive way. Asking in this direct, unbiased manner, can open the door for effective dialogue about their emotional pain and can allow everyone be the one to ask graphicinvolved to see what next steps need to be taken. Other questions you can ask include, “How do you hurt?” and “How can I help?” Do not ever promise to keep their thoughts of su***de a secret.

The flip side of the “Ask” step is to “Listen.” Make sure you take their answers seriously and not to ignore them, especially if they indicate they are experiencing thoughts of su***de. Listening to their reasons for being in such emotional pain, as well as listening for any potential reasons they want to continue to stay alive, are both incredibly important when they are telling you what’s going on. Help them focus on their reasons for living and avoid trying to impose your reasons for them to stay alive.

Why – Studies show that asking at-risk individuals if they are suicidal does not increase su***des or suicidal thoughts. In fact, studies suggest the opposite: findings suggest acknowledging and talking about su***de may in fact reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation.

For Disability Pride Month, we want your help to destigmatize non-harmful #stimming like The Autism Cafe and her son, Charlie! Tell us how and why you stim by submitting your story and photo for a chance to be featured on our social media here: https://bit.ly/3htIWA3

"We’ve reached the point where Charlie’s autism is no longer an invisible disability.
It's reasonable for anyone who sees a seven-and-a-half-year-old at the grocery store hysterically jumping, squealing, and flapping his hands, to stare. I don’t blame them — it’s human.
A couple of times, in response to Charlie’s intense stimming, I heard a little kid ask their parents what was wrong with Charlie or why he was doing that. Every single time, the parent was embarrassed and told their child not to be rude.
I don’t find it rude. And you don’t have to be embarrassed if your child has questions. Normalize it. Teach them about stimming. Explain that some children show their feelings differently. Don’t make it awkward!
Non-harmful stimming shouldn’t be discouraged. We should strive to teach more kids about the different types of expression they'll encounter in the world 💙"

Q: My Child Is Dr. Jekyll at School, Mr. Hyde at Home

This is a good read about children’s behaviors at school v. at home.

Q: My Child Is Dr. Jekyll at School, Mr. Hyde at Home “When I see children exhibiting behavior challenges at home, but none of it appears at school, that says to me that they are screaming for scaffolding.”

1:10 children may suffer from Anxiety.
Some anxiety symptoms are apparent however other symptoms can manifest in behaviours such as refusal, avoidance or defiance which mask the underlying anxiety.. talking to kids about their emotions rather their ‘behaviour’ can provide further insight about what they might be anxious about 👍
