Suicide Prevention Awareness

Depression can affect anyone. According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, the number of suicides in Nebraska is almost equal to the number of people who die as a result of car accidents. In 2013, 217 Nebraskans took their own lives, compared to 234 people who died as a result of a motor vehicle accident. These figures have shown that there is a need for suicide prevention awareness. According to Scot Adams, the director of behaviorial health at the Nebraska DHHS, anyone can reach out to family, friends and colleagues that they are concerned about and help them get the help they need.
A few of the following signs could indicate that someone is at risk of committing suicide:

-Talking about wanting to die or to kill themselves.
-Looking for a way to kill themselves, such as searching onling or buying a gun.
-Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live.
-Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain.
-Talking about being a burden to others.
-Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs.
-Acting anxious or agitated or behaving recklessly.
-Sleeping too little or too much.
-Withdrawing or isolating themselves.
-Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge.
-Displaying extreme mood swings.

If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please reach out to them. Call the national suicide hotline at 800-273-TALK or the Nebraska Family Helpline at 888-866-8660.
