If you or your loved one is experiencing a mental health emergency or is in a life-threatening situation, call 911 and ask for a Crisis Intervention Trained (CIT) Officer.
How to Support Someone
Know the Signs: Pain isn't always obvious, but most suicidal people show some warning signs that they are thinking about suicide.
Find the Words: Some phrases are more difficult to say to a loved one, but none are more important when it comes to suicide prevention. Asking "are you okay?" or saying "I've noticed you haven't been yourself lately" are a few ways to start the conversation.
Reach Out: You are not alone. There are many resources available to you. Please see the Additional Resources below.
