Suicidal Thoughts

When mental health challenges go unaddressed, they can lead to serious health problems and can even be fatal. Suicide is preventable if you learn the warning signs and speak up if you’re worried about yourself or a loved one. 



Whether you’re feeling hopeless, worried about a loved one or coping after losing someone to suicide, there are always actions you can take to help yourself or someone you care about


The hopelessness that contributes to suicidal thoughts is usually temporary, and most survivors are glad they lived. Get help at the first sign that you or someone you know feels suicidal. You aren’t alone, and things will get better.
