Suicide Warning Signs

Suicide can affect anyone, including children and youth. Take care of the young people you know. Recognize the warning signs. Sudden loss of interest in hobbies, a focus on death and dying, or feelings of hopelessness can be warning signs of suicidal ideation. School absenteeism, a drop in grades, or giving away possessions can also be indicators. Look out for changes in appetite or sleep patterns. Bottom line: if you sense a problem, get help.

 

Seek assistance at your local school or medical facility. Call CYS or Family Advocacy. Military Family Life Counselors or family pediatricians can help, too. Most importantly: don’t ignore the signs.
