Suicide Awareness and Prevention

What are the warning signs of youth suicide?

If you are concerned about your child, ask yourself the following questions. Has your son or daughter shown or shared any of the following:

  1.  Talk about wanting to die, be dead, or about suicide, or are they cutting or burning themselves?
  2. Feeling like things may never get better, seeming like they are in terrible emotional pain (like something is wrong deep inside but they can’t make it go away), or they are struggling to deal with a big loss in their life?
  3. Or is your gut telling you to be worried because they have withdrawn from everyone and everything, have become more anxious or on edge, seem unusually angry, or just don’t seem normal to you?
