Here, you'll find tips on how to identify warning signs, information and resources about suicide prevention, advice on how to talk to someone who is suicidal, and stories from people who have been affected by suicide.
If you’ve attended any of our suicide prevention trainings, you may recall that isolation is one of the possible warning signs that someone may be considering suicide. We encourage you to be “noticers” (not in Websters Dictionary – yet!) and reach out when you observe someone withdrawing or not acting like themselves.
As fate would have it, our new Lock and Talk Virginia website is launching at the tail end of Mental Health Awareness Month during this extraordinary health crisis. Many months ago, when we started developing a more robust site, we had no idea electronic communication would become not just a helpful tool, but vital to suicide prevention work.
