NSV Highlight on: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

If you or someone you know is in crisis, thinking of suicide, please call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. They offer other options to communicate to trained counselors by online chat (via their website), in Spanish, or for the deaf & hard of hearing.

The website recommends more specific contacts for youth, veterans, loss survivors, disaster survivors, LGBTQ, Native Americans, and attempt survivors. The SuicidePreventionLifeline.org gives resources for providers and professionals, including the Suicide Risk Assessment Standards. Finally, they provide three relaxing, de-stressing videos in the Safe Zone that are great for anybody looking to relax and find a safe place online. Those concerned about their loved ones or friends can also find information about warning signs and how to get loved ones the help they need. Plus there are stories about those who have gone through similar problems.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is the most established and trusted source for those who need help. If you are thinking of taking your life or you believe that someone you know is considering suicide, call them now!
