When do I know if I should be worried a friend, loved one, or acquaintance might be suicidal? How do I know? How can I help them?
Earners will learn warning signs of suicide, skills related to discussing suicide with someone they may be worried about, and suicide prevention resources. Complete the following activities for a total of 100 points to receive this badge. This badge should take approximately 1-2 hours to complete.
NOTE: This content explores themes around suicide. Proceed with care.
If you’re hurting, afraid, or need someone to talk to, please reach out to one of the resources below. Someone will reach back. You are so deeply valued, so incomprehensibly loved—even when you can’t feel it—and you are worth your life.
** Many of these resources could utilize restrictive interventions, like active rescues (wellness or welfare checks) involving law enforcement or emergency services. A warmline is least likely to do this, but still might have these policies. You can ask if this is a possibility at any point in your conversation if this is a concern for you.
