Suicide prevention

Our workshop, held on November 17, 2012, was intended to teach those who are in a position to recognize the warning signs, clues, and suicidal communications of people in trouble to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

 

Warning Signs of Suicide

  • Suicide threats

  • Previous suicide attempts

  • Alcohol and drug abuse

  • Statements revealing a desire to die

  • Sudden changes in behavior

  • Prolonged depression

  • Making final arrangements

  • Giving away prized possessions

  • Purchasing a gun or stockpiling pills

 

To Save a Life ...

  • Realize someone might be suicidal.

  • Reach out. Asking the suicide question does not increase the risk.

  • Listen. Talking things out can save a life.

  • Don't try to do everything yourself. Get others involved.

  • Don't promise secrecy and don't worry about being disloyal.

  • If persuasion fails, call your mrental health center, local hotline, or emergency services.

 

Resource Numbers

  • 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

  • 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433)
