Be Alert for Suicide Warning Signs
Always take the possibility seriously - never ignore the warning signs of a loved one!
There are times when crisis intervention cannot be placed on an appointment calendar for a scheduled meeting. For example, if a client is so depressed that suicide is a serious possibility, reaching out to our counselor may or may not be possible. Even so, help must be provided right away, which may require placing the client in the protective care of an inpatient facility. If you are concerned about one of your family members and want to know if a crisis situation is on the horizon, please visit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline website and read the warning signs for suicide. (www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org) Life is too precious to not take this seriously.
