You can help prevent suicide.
Pain isn’t always obvious, but most people thinking about suicide show signs that something is wrong – in conversation, in their actions, on social media, in their job performance.
Visit SuicideIsPreventable.org to learn the signs. If you see any of these warning signs – especially if it's new, has increased, or seems related to a painful event, loss, or change – speak up.
Learn. Act. Make a difference.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. Visit their website to read real stories, learn the facts about suicide, join a local chapter, or discover how to be an advocate in your community.
