Actions to help prevent Suicide

Posted on July 26, 2013



Hear from Pat Risser drawing from his personal experience on actions you can take to prevent suicide.

The first action is to let your friends know about what you are feeling. Having friends in your life who understands your situation can make it much easier to cope with your suicidal thoughts.

The second action is know that you do not have to act on your suicidal thoughts, that you have control and fight against carrying out such drastic actions.

The third action is "first to others". Paying it forward makes you feel good about your life by giving to others.
