It can be hard to know if a person is thinking about suicide. But you can look for warning signs and know the risk factors and events that may make suicide more likely.
It is important to take all threats and mentions of suicide seriously. If you or someone you know is threatening suicide, get help right away. If this is an emergency, call
911 right away. You can also get help any time, day or night, from
