What Does UNALIVE Mean?

UNALIVE means "To Commit Suicide." The term, although morbid, became a way for users on TikTok to freely discuss and remove the stigmas relating to suicide. TikTok generally removes videos and content that refer to death, dying, or suicide, so users instead use the verb “to unalive”. It is typically used in a more light-hearted context. Videos part of the #unalive hashtag usually range from: mental health discussions, uplifting advice, depressed people, or overly dramatic people (making a joke about a small inconvenience).

Here is an example of a TikTok that uses the #unalive hashtag:

send help ##mentalheath ##unalive ##lesbian ##lgbt ##lanzarote ##ripme ##foryou ##fyp ##fyp?
