Prevent Suicide

Knowing the warning signs of suicide could save a life. They include:

  • Buying a gun or other weapon
  • Giving away possessions, or making a will or funeral arrangements
  • Statements such as "I won't be a problem much longer" or "Nothing matters."
  • Sudden, unexplained cheerfulness or calm after a period of depression
  • Threats or talk of suicide

If you notice any of these signs, get help right away. Call a health care professional, mental health clinic or suicide hotline and ask what action to take. In an emergency, call 911.
