In September, people in San Diego and across the globe will come together to spread awareness about the warning signs and offer support to those who have lost someone to suicide.

The warning signs for suicide— withdrawal, depression and hopelessness— are there, but not always obvious. It’s up to us to learn to recognize the warning signs and offer support to someone we care about.

“Are you thinking of ending your life?” Few phrases are as difficult to say to a loved one. But when it comes to suicide prevention, none are more important. Click here for suggestions on how to find the words to start the conversation.
