If you're suspecting someone is thinking of suicide, asking them directly won't increase their risk. Having a #RealConvo can actually help, and can give them space to openly talk about how they're feeling. Get tips and guidance on how to have a conversation about mental health at afsp.org/realconvo.

It’s important that we don’t reduce Suicide Prevention to one month, a check in, or a hotline. It’s much more than that.

At the very least it requires advocacy throughout the year, trainings, communities, programs, accessibility to basic needs, and destigmatizing mental illnesses. CCPH offers suicide prevention trainings to campus groups of students and staff.

Crisis intervention is important and can literally be the difference between life and death, but the key is to try to prevent it from getting to that point through awareness and advocacy.

Thank you for the image and powerful words!
