SUICIDE PREVENTION MONTH!

9.13.21

 

Suicidal thoughts are common. Suicidal acts, threats and attempts are less common, but much more frequent than most people realize. Suicide is the most common psychiatric emergency and a leading cause of premature death.

Suicide is difficult to talk about, but you also know that research has shown the majority of those who attempt suicide give some warning signs, verbal or behavioral, of their intent to kill themselves in the final days and weeks of their journey from the idea of self-destruction to the act of suicide.

See attached documents below to help you understand about what to be aware of, what to look out for and solutions to suicide, along with resource guides (in English and Spanish).
