  • Expressing about ‘not wanting to go’, ‘can’t take it anymore’, there’s no point’ or to ‘end it all’ and end their misery. Direct expressions verbalizing they want to kill themselves should be acknowledged and taken seriously.
  • Looking for the means to end one’s life, planning to obtain certain objects to aid suicide, for example, stockpiling tablets, buying a rope, using the internet to research best method.
  • Talking about endings, no point in living anymore, feeling hopeless.

 Health and Wellness is available to discuss these feelings and to reach out to support students during their semester while studying abroad in London.
