Suicide Prevention
Updated On: Feb 10, 2021

Preventing suicide is everyone’s business

As members of a family, a school, a business, neighbors in a community, faith communities, friends, and the government, we all need to work together to solve this problem.
We simply can no longer allow those we love, work with, or play with to believe that suicide is the only solution, even in the worst of times.
Learning to be attuned to those around us.
Learning to ask and talk about challenging topics.
STEPS TO HELP A COWORKER IN NEED: 
      STEP ONE:
Have the difficult conversation
Do not be afraid to ask if the person is considering hurting themselves, committing suicide
Be prepared for the answer
Do not leave the person alone
If possible, have someone with you
Listen to the verbal and non-verbal answers
STEP TWO:
Always keep yourself safe
Always keep the person safe
Examine the room for items of potential harm
•Drugs? Could they have taken anything before you arrived?
Remember to look out for your Brothers and Sisters in the workplace. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but it could save someone's life! 

Lifeline is a free, 24-hour hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress

•Calls are routed to the crisis center closest to the caller, 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255)
