Suicide Hotline

 

Every Suicide is preventable.

Please reach out to those you love and offer support.

Do not:

  • Belittle their pain
  • Laugh it off
  • Tell them to toughen up
  • Tease or Bully
  • Tell them to hold it in, or not to cry
  • Tell them they’re bumming you out
  • Play professional.  You can listen but you cannot diagnose or treat.

 

Do:

  • Tell them you support/love them
  • Provide other resources
  • Encourage them to seek professional help
  • Answer their calls, check in on them
  • Provide a listening ear and a firm shoulder
  • Hugs are nice
  • Distractions like a favorite movie or book can help
  • Be a friend
