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.

You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text TALK to 741741 to message with a trained crisis counselor from the Crisis Text Line for free.

 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
