 Suicide prevention starts with recognizing the warning signs of suicide and taking them seriously. Talking openly about suicidal thoughts and feelings can save a life. National and local mental health services offer telephone and face-to-face counseling for people who are at risk of suicide.

If you or someone you love is struggling with thoughts of suicide, please call 2-1-1 or reach out to one of these agencies.
