suicide_prevention_logoribbonIn observance of National Suicide Prevention Week, the staff at Families for Depression Awareness has compiled a short list of resources to help you become more comfortable getting help for yourself or helping someone else who is at risk for suicide.

Above all else, remember to be empathetic when trying to help someone who is at risk for suicide. Emergency medical help is available in most communities by dialing 911 from a land line, or by calling the local first responder from a mobile phone. Program a first responder's phone number in your mobile phone today.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255.
