Suicide Prevention 

What you can do if you think someone might be considering Suicide:
  1. Watch for warning signs: depression and hopelessness, substance abuse, giving away possessions, dramatic mood changes, intense anger.
  2. Question: "Are you thinking about suicide?"  "How would you do it?"  "When would you do it?"
    • This allows your friend to ask for help and talk openly about their feelings
    • These questions help you to know what you need to do to get them help
  3. Persuade: Talk with your friend about getting help.  Keep the conversation positive.
  4. Report: 911, SafeUT, school counselor
