suicide prevention

All suicide clues & warning signs should be taken seriously.  There are signs and clues that we can learn to look for to see if someone is thinking about suicide.  There can be direct verbal clues, such as someone saying "I wish I were dead", or indirect verbal clues, such as "I just want out".  Other signs might be a person withdrawing from things they normally love to do or when a person goes through a major life change, such as job loss or death of a loved one.  

To learn more about the signs of suicide and how you can help, we encourage you to attend a Question-Persuade-Refer (QPR) Suicide Prevention Training session.
