Understanding Suicide: Seeing the Signs
August 26, 2022
Suicide prevention experts agree that you don’t need to be a doctor or trained professional to recognize the signs of suicide in friends or loved ones. Hopelessness, lack of purpose, or an increased sense of causing burden are important signs to watch. And, if someone is considering suicide or in crisis, never leave them alone.
If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide and seeking emotional support, there are crisis lines available 24/7 via phone, chat, or text. Call 988 - the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. Click here for more resources from Indiana Suicide Prevention.
