Suicide prevention.

Suicide is tragic, yet often preventable, and MHRB works daily to help reduce deaths by suicide and to support survivors of suicide loss. Want to help us?

How do you know if someone is thinking of suicide?

Most individuals who die by suicide show signs of distress. These signs can be detected through direct statements about suicide, indirect statements, significant changes in behavior and in response to recent life events. It is important to understand that there is not “one reason” why someone decides to end his or her life. Suicide is a complex issue with many underlying causes.

Things people might say:

  • I’m going to kill myself/end it all
  • If [insert actions], I’ll kill myself
  • I wish I were dead
  • [Insert person or people] would be better off without me
  • I can’t go on/want to quit
  • You won’t have to worry about me much longer
  • Who cares if I die?
  • I’m not needed anymore

Things people might do:

  • Planning for death, like making or changing a will and/or life insurance policies, making funeral arrangements, or giving things away out of the blue
  • Buying a gun, collecting pills, or seeking other means
  • Increased use of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Showing sudden changes in behavior, like episodes of anger or having conflict with others
  • Having prior suicide attempts
  • Talking or writing about death, dying, or suicide, when out of the ordinary
  • Visiting the doctor without any physical issues

Potential warning signs:

  • Sudden break up, separation, or divorce
  • Unwanted recent changes, like moving or experiencing a loss of freedom
  • Loss of loved one (especially if sudden or by suicide) or therapist
  • Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness
  • Financial troubles

If these signs sound familiar, it’s time to take action. Here’s how you can help:

  • Take any signs seriously, especially if the person has a plan or access to weapons
  • Ask the person directly whether they are thinking of suicide. Ask if they have a plan. Asking these questions does NOT increase risk.
  • Listen carefully and let the person know that you care
  • Try to convince the person to get help and connect them to resources
  • Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room

It’s important to act quickly if you or someone you know are having suicidal thoughts. People don’t always plan to die by suicide before they act on it. A person is experiencing emotional pain and his or her judgment is impaired. Because of the role that impulsivity plays in suicide, it is critical for you to intervene as soon as possible.

Overdose prevention.

When a family member, close friend, or even just an acquaintance is suffering from a mental illness and/or addiction, you may find yourself at a loss for what to say or how to help. Know that you’re not alone.

These simple steps will help you to open the doors to communication with the individual, show your support, and find clarity in the challenging situation.

  • If possible, talk when they’re sober so that they can fully comprehend what you’re saying and actively participate in the conversation.
  • Acknowledge their disease and give examples of how you’ve witnessed the negative impact it’s had on their life firsthand.
  • Show love and support but set boundaries for your relationship so that you’re not enabling their behavior (i.e., know that it’s ok to choose not to be around them when they’re using drugs).
  • Be as clear and consistent as possible in your conversations (i.e. “I’m angry at the disease, not you.”) to avoid confusion when their cognitive abilities may not be fully functioning.
  • Support their recovery and help them find resources but know that the road to recovery will be a long one for all parties involved. Your support can make all the difference!
