Facts about suicide deaths
1 person dies every 11 minutes
males 3 times more likely
40-50 percent of people exposed to suicide
12.3 million Americans have thought about suicide
1.7 million people attempted suicide in 2021

The Truth is in the Numbers

A growing number of Americans suffer from depression, anxiety, or other mental illnesses.  Many individuals are overwhelmed with feeling helpless and do not believe they have anyone to turn to for help and support. The high pressures brought to many by work, finances, school, and stressful relationships can often feel like it is too much to bear.  On top of that, social media continues to impact how others view themself and the world around them.  These influences are not going away and the truth is the number of individuals committing suicide continues to rise.  In fact, the suicide rate has gone up 400 % in youth in just a little over a decade. 


You Can Be a Lifeline

If you know someone who is going through a challenging time or struggling emotionally,  you have the opportunity to play a very important role in their life.  In fact, you could be that one person who makes a difference.  Everyone wants to be heard, understood, and validated.  By offering to talk or lending a listening ear, you're demonstrating that they do not have to go through their difficult times alone. In 


There are some key warning signs to pay close attention to as you are listening to your friend or loved one speak.  Here are a few things to keep in mind to determine if they are at risk for suicide. 

Is the behavior new, has it increased, or is it related to a painful event, loss, or big life change?  

Warning Signs

If you or someone you know demonstrates any of the following, reach out for help by calling the 988 Lifeline. 

  • Talking about wanting to die or to kill themselves

  • Looking for a way to kill themselves, like searching online or buying a gun

  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live

  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain

  • Talking about being a burden to others

  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs

  • Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly

  • Sleeping too little or too much

  • Withdrawing or isolating themselves

  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge

  • Extreme mood swings

It is important for you to know it is ok to reach out to the Lifeline for someone else.  We encourage you to never keep it a secret if a friend tells you about wanting to hurt themselves. That is their way calling out for help.  By calling 988 you can find out what local resources are available in your area, or encourage your loved one to call. 

Do's and Don'ts

We know that it can be difficult talking with someone that may be suicidal.  Below are some tips that may help guide you through this process so you can be fully present in the moment.

  • Be direct. Talk openly and matter-of-factly about suicide.

  • Be willing to listen. Allow expressions of feelings. Accept the feelings.

  • Be non-judgmental. Don’t debate whether suicide is right or wrong, or whether feelings are good or bad. Don’t lecture on the value of life.

  • Get involved. Become available. Show interest and support.

  • Don’t dare him or her to do it.

  • Don’t act shocked. This will put distance between you.

  • Don’t be sworn to secrecy. Seek support.

  • Offer hope that alternatives are available but do not offer glib reassurance.

  • Take action. Remove means, like weapons or pills.

  • Get help from people or agencies specializing in crisis intervention and suicide prevention.
