Suicide Prevention Guide
September is National Suicide Prevention Month. Last week, we received the following e-mail:
With September being ‘Suicide Awareness Month’, I have been putting together a list of resources to share with our after school program. One of my helpers found this guide:
Healthy Mind and Healthy Body: Suicide Prevention Guide
Would you mind including it on your page? My helper’s name is Kristin, if you would like to add that. She’s 11, and I thought it was a great find for her!
the Healthy Mind and Healthy Body: Suicide Prevention Guide is a resource from White Sands Treatment in Florida. It includes sections on:
- Noticing the Signs,
- Precautions to Take, and
- What to do After and Attempt.
Each section includes a brief introduction and a number of links to external resources like Psych Central, Web MD and Suicide.org amongst others. All in all, it is a great comprehensive resource for anyone trying to help someone dealing with suicidal thoughts. Thanks to Kristin for bringing it to our attention!
