    Yes it is.

    Adults with autism face an elevated risk of suicide even after taking into account a number of known risk factors, such as unemployment, depression and anxiety.

    The video below has a series of questions about suicidal thoughts. Please read them carefully. 

    You’re looking at things through depression glasses, which make everything look worse. When you recover, things will look very different. Problems that seemed hopeless will suddenly have obvious solutions. 

    The most important thing is knowing how to cope in a moment of crisis. It's very important to calm down. This will make you feel better and let you think clearly.

    A very easy way to calm down is just to breathe slowly. A doctor recommends inhale to a count of 4, exhale to 6. You'll feel better in 5 min or less.

    Also, simple distractions can be very good. This video has suggestions. It also has a very good hotline. No one will bother you if you call.
