    Explanation

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the options listed - perceived immediate supports, planning for the future, engagement with a helper, and a sense of purpose - can act as buffers for preventing suicide. Perceived immediate supports refer to having people or resources available to provide immediate help and support during a crisis. Planning for the future involves setting goals and having a sense of hope and anticipation for what lies ahead. Engagement with a helper refers to seeking professional assistance or confiding in someone who can provide guidance and support. Finally, having a sense of purpose gives individuals a reason to live and motivates them to overcome difficult times.

    Suicidal people wish to escape psychological pain. Their state of extreme distress diminishes their ability to think of ways to do so, which leads some people to consider suicide as an escape.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that suicidal individuals often experience intense psychological pain and distress. This overwhelming state of distress can impair their ability to think clearly and consider alternative solutions to their problems. As a result, some individuals may view suicide as a way to escape this psychological pain and find relief. Therefore, it is true that suicidal people wish to escape psychological pain, which can lead them to consider suicide as an escape.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that a majority of people who commit suicide often exhibit warning signs or clues to others about their intentions. These clues may not always be verbal and can be difficult to detect. Therefore, the answer "True" indicates that there is a likelihood of individuals giving some form of indication before taking such a drastic step.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following warning signs is the MOST INDICATIVE of suicide?

    • A.

      Verbal cues such as, "No one will have to worry about me anymore."

    • B.

      Loss of appetite

    • C.

      Feelings of guilt

    • D.

      Social withdrawal

    Correct Answer
    A. Verbal cues such as, "No one will have to worry about me anymore."
    Explanation
    Verbal cues such as, "No one will have to worry about me anymore" are the most indicative of suicide because they directly express the person's intention to end their life. This statement suggests that the person believes their death will relieve the burden they perceive themselves to be on others. Verbal cues are important warning signs as they provide direct insight into the person's thoughts and intentions. Loss of appetite, feelings of guilt, and social withdrawal are also potential indicators of suicidal ideation, but the explicit statement about not causing worry anymore is a stronger indicator.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

      Saying, "I'm going to kill myself."

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because suicidal intent encompasses all the mentioned factors. Suicidal intent can be present when there is a plan or attempt in progress, an imminent plan to harm oneself or others, preparatory behaviors, and an expressed intent to die. Each of these elements contributes to the overall assessment of someone's suicidal intent, and when all of them are present, it indicates a higher level of risk.
