- Expressing a lack of hope regarding the future
- Speaking or displaying emotional pain (recent losses, feelings like something is wrong with them)
- Recent changes in behavior:
- Excessive use of alcohol and/or drugs
- Changes in eating habits
- Changes in sleeping (either sleeping more or not sleeping)
- Extreme changes in mood and/or increase in irritability
