September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

Suicide prevention is up to all of us, you can save a life.If you are concerned about yourself or somebody else, please call the Maine Crisis Hotline 1-888-568-111.  Contact the Crisis Text Line by texting CONNECT to 74174. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 1-800-273-8255. All of the above are available for free 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

To help reduce deaths by suicide Maine CDC promotes the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s #BeThe1To campaign (www.BeThe1To.com), encouraging individuals to recognize and intervene when someone they know may be at risk of suicide.

According to the article Primary Care:  A Crucial Setting for Suicide Prevention by Jerry Reed, PhD, MSW, Director, Suicide Prevention Resource Center, "Up to 45% of individuals who die by suicide have visited their primary care physician within a month of their death; additional research suggests that up to 67% of those who attempt suicide receive medical attention as a result of their attempt. Given these statistics, primary care has enormous potential to prevent suicides and connect people to needed specialty care — especially when they collaborate or formally partner with behavioral healthcare providers."
