“As a community, we need to understand mental illness and suicide. Survivors of suicide need to be able to grieve as openly as others. Healing is possible, help and support is available.” – Annabelle
Pain isn’t always obvious but you can learn to recognize the signs and how and where to reach out if you or someone you know is thinking about suicide. In an emergency, dial 911.
The following resources can also help you find immediate help, keep yourself safe, learn how to help someone else in a crisis, or get involved in the campaign to raise awareness and change the way we collectively deal with suicide.
In preparation for Suicide Prevention Week 2016, please find the Each Mind Matters toolkit here with downloadable materials to help you plan activities promoting awareness and education.
