• IF SOMEONE IS IN CRISIS, DO NOT HESITATE DIAL 911

    Suicide is preventable. Help someone who may not have the mindfulness to help themselves. Don't leave the person alone and seek immediate help. Warning signs of suicidal intent can include but are not limited to someone talking about or threatening to hurt themselves, feelings of helplessness, or feelings of hopelessness.  Click on any of the links in this section to learn what to say, how to help, and where to get support. Being informed about the signs, risks, and supports are valuable tools for suicide prevention. Talking and listening about suicide and mental health may feel awkward, but they are important ways to learn and help.

    The BPD MHET Team will come to the school or home to assess suicide risk and address the need for or arrange immediate hospitalization. Please contact your school site for assistance.
