Suicide Prevention

One way we can all help lower the statistics of suicide is to talk about it. Having open conversations about mental health and emotional struggles helps reduce the stigma–which is what prevents a lot of people from seeking the help they need. The truth is, we can all benefit from honest conversations about suicide, because just one conversation can change a life.

Our aim is to not only educate employees and their families on ways to recognize warning signs but how to keep those at heightened risk safe while ensuring they get the care they need.

If you have lost a loved one to suicide, the impact can be intense and overwhelming. Know that you don’t have to cope alone. Talk to a caring professional or join a support group to help you heal and move forward. Contact the EAP to learn more.

Hope, Resiliency and Connection

Having hope for the future builds resilience. Resilience is a protective factor against suicide risk. Strong, positive relationships with others can also protect and prevent against suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Follow the links below to learn more.
