Question

Guest fff

Hello, I have a group of friends and the topic of suicide came up in conversation. However, some people were highly insensitive and downright rude about the matter, saying things like "suck it up" and "we're living to die anyways". How can I convince them, or encourage them, to be more sensitive and try to maybe learn more about suicide?

Be like "hey, that's a really shitty thing to say to/about people who struggle with this stuff". Let them know it's not okay. If they're willing to listen further, you can explain that mental health is just as real as physical health and that people who suffer from mental illness cannot "just cheer up" because it doesn't work like that. Speaking up may be all you can do. But it can be powerful. You never know, someone listening may be struggling and feel better that you stood up for what's right.
