Suicide Warning Signs:

  • Talking about suicide or wanting to end their life
  • Appearing depressed or sad most of the time
  • Feeling worthless, ashamed, or rejected
  • Losing interest in favorite activities
  • Giving away valued possessions
  • Disheveled physical appearance
  • Isolating from family and friends
  • Sleeping too much or too little

If you are concerned that someone may be thinking about suicide:

  • Invite them to talk with you
  • Listen to what they say without judging
  • Stay with them
  • Walk them to Counseling Services
  • Give them a crisis hotline number (see sidebar)

The CDC reports that 12 million Americans have had serious suicidal thoughts. Be there for yourself, your loved ones, and your peers. Join us for QPR training on September 8th and become a mental health ally! *See the Counseling Services Instagram or website for more details
