September is Suicide Prevention Month

"Suicide is a major public health concern. In 2019, suicide was the 10th leading cause of death overall in the United States, claiming the lives of over 47,500 people. Suicide is complicated and tragic, but it is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs for suicide and how to get help can help save lives." 

If You Know Someone in Crisis

Call or text the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988 (para ayuda en español, llame al 988)

ASK: “Are you thinking about killing yourself?” It’s not an easy question, but studies show that asking at-risk individuals if they are suicidal does not increase suicides or suicidal thoughts.

KEEP THEM SAFE: Reducing a suicidal person’s access to highly lethal items or places is an important part of suicide prevention. While this is not always easy, asking if the at-risk person has a plan and removing or disabling the lethal means can make a difference.

BE THERE: Listen carefully and learn what the individual is thinking and feeling. Research suggests acknowledging and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal thoughts.

HELP THEM CONNECT: Save the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline number (call or text 988) and the Crisis Text Line number (741741) in your phone so they’re there if you need them. You can also help make a connection with a trusted individual like a family member, friend, spiritual advisor, or mental health professional.

STAY CONNECTED: Staying in touch after a crisis or after being discharged from care can make a difference. Studies have shown the number of suicide deaths goes down when someone follows up with the at-risk person.


PREGUNTE: “¿Estás pensando en suicidarte?” No es una pregunta fácil de hacer, pero los estudios muestran que preguntar a las personas en riesgo si tienen pensamientos o deseos de morir o de matarse no aumenta los suicidios ni los pensamientos suicidas.

MANTÉNGALA A SALVO: Reducir el acceso de la persona con pensamientos suicidas a ciertos objetos o lugares sumamente letales es parte esencial de la prevención del suicidio. Si bien hacer esto no es fácil, preguntarle a la persona en riesgo si tiene algún plan de hacerse daño y desactivar o eliminar cualquier medio letal puede marcar la diferencia.

ESTÉ PRESENTE: Escuche atentamente para enterarse de lo que la persona en riesgo está pensando y sintiendo. De hecho, las investigaciones sugieren que reconocer y hablar sobre el suicidio puede reducir los pensamientos suicidas en lugar de aumentarlos.

AYÚDELA A ESTABLECER UNA CONEXIÓN: Guarde el número de la Red Nacional de Prevención del Suicidio (1-888-628-9454) y el de la línea de crisis para mensajes de texto en inglés (741741) en su teléfono celular para que lo tenga a mano cuando lo necesite. Usted también puede ayudar a la persona con pensamientos suicidas a establecer una conexión con una persona de confianza, como un miembro de la familia, un amigo, un asesor espiritual o un profesional de la salud mental.

MANTÉNGASE COMUNICADO: Mantenerse en contacto con la persona después de que tuvo una crisis o después de haber sido dada de alta de su tratamiento puede marcar la diferencia. Los estudios han demostrado que el número de muertes por suicidio disminuye cuando alguien da seguimiento con la persona en riesgo.
