No one can hold themselves responsible for the suicide of one person, however, students should feel obligated to report any suspicious behavior that seems suicidal. Teachers also carry this duty, but students are more likely to catch any type of verbal or physical signs of depression and suicidal thoughts. The widespread and growing rates of suicide are distraught, and should be bought to the spotlight to showcase how this is clearly not the answer to burdensome problems. Once noted, the student should not only report this life-saving information, but encourage the student to think positively, and neglect any degrading words the victim puts upon themselves.

Another way to prevent any problems leading to depression can be to check up on peers and other students, whether because of a decrease in their overall mood, or simply just being a good friend. Everyone has their problems, but a simple question of how one is doing can make an ultimate difference if he or she is willing to ask.

However, students not only should be observing classmates, but anyone could be hiding their despair, even family. Checking up on family members is easier because of how close and intimate they can be. Reporting this information may not be as simple, but being around them can be a strong and beneficial factor to being available to help for long portions of the day.
