Suicide Awareness

And Prevention

Have you, or a loved one, ever experienced suicidal thoughts?

Suicidal thoughts are not rare and you are not alone. You are also not “weak” or “bad” if you have such thoughts.

Suicidal thoughts are a response to tremendous emotional pain that can be treated. Things can get better.
