Suicide: 5 Consequences Of A Failed Suicide Attempt

Failed suicide attempts

Did you know that the Golden Gate Bridge is the most “popular” suicide destination in the world?

On average, every two weeks, someone jumps from the bridge to take their own life. It’s a devastating jump. The height, the long fall, the hit to the water, etc. is devastating.

In the links below, I provide videos that discusses the suicides of those who have jumped and those who have survived.

In this video, I discuss the consequences and challenges of a failed suicide attempt. 

*If you know someone struggling with suicidal thoughts, I encourage you to call 1-800-273-8255 and/or text “STAY” to 741-741. *TRIGGER WARNING: This video discusses failed suicide attempts and the world’s most used location for assisting in suicide. Can be disturbing to watch.


What is trauma? Trauma is a physiological, psychological, emotional/psychological, and neuro-biological process that takes a toll on your entire person. It can be experienced in many ways and it isn’t something you can easily get over.

Can I overcome it? Yes. Trauma is a process that requires healing and growth overtime. Even though you may continue to experience flashbacks, symptoms, or other reminders from time to time, that doesn’t mean you aren’t healing. Just like a head concussion, a heart disease, o something similar, you may be healed but periodically experience symptoms.

Can I recover from a #suicide attempt? Yes. You can. It takes processing of the event and the events leading up to the attempted suicide in order for you to move forward. Suppressing, internalizing, or ignoring what happened will delay your recovery and healing process. In this video, I will focus on failed suicide attempts and some of the challenges attempters face when things don’t go the way they had hoped. Other attempters are glad heir plan didn’t succeed and have made videos and blogs about their experience.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please continue to stay safe!
