Trevor Lifeline- The only national 24/7 crisis intervention and suicide prevention lifeline for LGBTQ young people 866-488-7386
Learning the warning signs of suicide is a huge part of preventing a crisis.
Although emotional ups and downs are normal, sometimes a person who is suicidal gives certain signs or hints that something is wrong. Knowing these major warning signs can help you connect someone you care about to support if they need it - even if that person is yourself.
Using drugs or alcohol more than usual Acting differently than usual Giving away valuable possessions Losing interest in favorite things to do Admiring people who have died by suicide Planning for death by writing a will or letter Eating or sleeping more or less than usual Feeling more sick, tired or achy than usual
Do you or someone you know...?
Not care about the future Put yourself down - and think you deserve it Plan to say goodbye to important people Have a specific plan for suicide
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are not alone. We are here for you 24/7 on the Trevor Lifeline (866-488-7386) - that means all day and night, every weekend, each holiday, and beyond.
If you recognize these signs in someone you know, please encourage them to ask for help. If they need support, empower them to call the Trevor Lifeline at 866-488-7386 to talk with a trained volunteer counselor.
