Be Ready to Ask Questions About Suicide
You’re on the front line to help people at risk of suicide...as the pandemic forces many to juggle stress, health concerns, loss, etc.
Keep mental health top of mind in your personal and professional interactions...to normalize the conversation and reduce stigma.
For example, when you ask people how they’re doing, dig deeper if the answer seems abrupt or raises concerns. And stay alert for indirect clues, such as people talking about “being a burden.”
