Vital Signs is a CDC report that appears on the first Tuesday of the month as part of the CDC journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, or MMWR. The report provides the latest data and information on key health indicators. These are cancer prevention, obesity, tobacco use, motor vehicle passenger safety, prescription drug overdose, HIV/AIDS, alcohol use, health care–associated infections, cardiovascular health, teen pregnancy, food safety, and developmental disabilities.
What to do if you believe someone is in crisis
If you believe someone is at immediate risk for suicide-they’re saying they intend to kill themselves and/or they have a plan-call 911 and do not leave the person alone under any circumstances. Remove anything they could use to hurt themselves, and escort them to an emergency room.
How to Recognize When Someone Is At Risk for Suicide
Understanding how to help someone who may be at risk for suicide is crucial toward reversing this trend.
How to help a loved one you believe is at risk
If you notice a drastic change in someone’s behavior that includes warning signs of suicide, don’t hesitate or assume someone else will intervene. Taking an active role to check on them could save their life
