Abstract

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is one dimension that has been linked with decreased suicidal ideation and behaviors, I detected several gaps in the literature in this area regarding the research designs and samples involved. In this research, I aimed to test a mediator model considering self-report EI, psychological distress and suicide risk across samples adopting both cross-sectional and prospective designs in independent studies. In present scenario everywhere work pressure due to competition and survival. Those who are able to manage that pressure with positive attitude goes high but who are not able to manage that pressure with stress they took hard step of life and committed suicide. I personally talked with many person who worked with stress and all time blame the things and not ready to manage with that and ready to finish everything in second of time. They are physically, mentally, morally strong but not emotionally strong. Emotional pain, stress and anxiety have become some of the most common challenges of the modern world where people live a robotic life, preoccupied by social media, gadgets, and in competition with their peers. With the growing wealth and virtual reality taking over our lives, anxiety and depression have become very common among people of all ages, class or economic background. Thousands of people are turning to psychoactive drugs because of depression and anxiety every day. A thorough knowledge about emotional intelligence can be a useful tool to decrease depression and anxiety among people. This will help people become familiar with their emotions and live an emotionally stable and healthy life.
