Suicide Among Older Adults Resources
“I’ve had several people close to me die by suicide and several others attempt suicide. The biggest shock to me was when my sister attempted suicide. After that I stopped looking at peoples’ age, sex, status, etc., and started looking for signs and clues instead. No one can really guess who may be thinking of taking their life and that’s why it is so important to be prepared and educated about suicide. There are so many classes available to educate you, like QPR. By educating yourself you can save someone else’s life. Suicide is preventable.”
