Suicidal behavior disorder is brought about by extreme emotional trauma, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, stress, drug or alcohol issues or intense clinical depression. It involves a persistent tendency to inflict self harm and physical pain on one self. Social anxiety, loss of sleep or appetite, lack of focus and tendency to be alone are symptoms that a person is progressively worsening into a state of suicidal behavior disorder. Immediate attention must be paid to the mental health either by way of prescription medications or hospital care 24*7.
