Concern for a loved one?

Tips for suicide prevention

Just Ask AND Listen!

If you have concerns for a loved one:
ASK directly if they’re thinking about suicide.
LISTEN to their response, calmly, without judgment.

KEEP SAFE - Contact the local crisis line or mental health clinic. Stay in contact with the person until they are in a safer place.

In emergency situations call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest Emergency Department.
