Getting the Facts

Is someone you know thinking of suicide?

If you are concerned that someone you know may be thinking of suicide, you can help. Remember, as a helper, do not promise to do anything you do not want to do or that you cannot do. First of all, if the person is actively suicidal, get help immediately. Call your local crisis service or the police, or take the person to the emergency room of your local hospital. Do not leave the person alone. If the person has attempted suicide and needs medical attention, call 9-1-1 or your local emergency services number.

Where can you go for more information?

Remember you are not alone. Reaching out for help and knowing where to go for positive support can prevent a tragedy. You may want to contact your family physician, the mental health crisis line at 1-866-996-0991, 211 (24 hour information & referral line) or the CMHA / Champlain East (www.cmha-east.on.ca) toll free at 1-800-493-8271.
