Warning Signs and Help for Those in Crisis

Everyone has a low day now and then, but when the situation turns serious and stays that way, anyone can use help, whether for ourselves or someone else.

The Jason Foundation’s free multimedia application "A Friend Asks" is an easy-to-use resource. It includes warning signs for someone at suicide risk, resources for help, advice on what to do or not do for a person in crisis, a treatment locator and one‐touch access to connect users directly to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
