Suicide Prevention

There’s a myth that people who talk about suicide won’t really do it. This is wrong. Before attempting suicide, many people make direct statements about their intention to end their lives or less direct comments about how they might as well be dead or that their friends and family will be better off without them. Any reference to suicide should be taken seriously.

People who have tried to kill themselves before are especially at risk, even if their previous attempts didn’t seem serious. Unless they’re helped, they may try again and the next time could be fatal. For more information, go to:
