Resources for Communities

We all have a role to play in suicide prevention. Sometimes something as simple as listening can go a long way in letting someone know they are not alone.

Community groups, faith groups, workplaces, networking circles – and the list goes on – can all work toward the common goal of ending the stigma of suicide and suicidal ideation.

The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention has resources for community-based efforts to implement suicide prevention strategies.

988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline – People can call, text, or chat with the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. Crisis workers, who are trained to help people who are in emotional distress, are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide free and confidential support.  

The Lifeline also has information that can help anyone become better educated about risk factors and warning signs in an effort to prevent suicide.
