Suicide should never be an option,
and its prevention is a team effort.
Did you know that:
Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24?
One in 11 high school students made a suicide attempt in the past 12 months?
86% of school psychologists surveyed reported that they had counseled a student
who had threatened or attempted suicide?
62% of school psychologists surveyed reported that they have had a student
make a nonfatal suicide attempt at school?
Suicide can be prevented.
While some suicides occur without any outward warning, most people who are suicidal do give warnings.
You can help prevent the suicide of a friend or a loved one by learning these three things:
1) Know the warning signs of someone at risk
2) Talk about it, let the person know you are concerned and
3) Respond and connect people to help.
1. Know the warning signs.
2. Talk about it – be willing to listen.
3. Respond and connect people to help.
