Suicide Prevention for co-workers 

 

Suicide is a leading cause of death for Kentuckians, yet suicide is one of the most preventable forms of death.

64% of Kentuckians know at least one person who has attempted or died by suicide.

33.8% consider themselves to be a suicide survivor (who has lost a loved one or close friend to suicide).  Experts believe most suicidal people don't want to die, they just want to end their pain.  When suicidal behaviors are detected early, lives can be saved.1

 

The workplace can play a vital role in the prevention of suicide.  Please take the time to read this slide presentation that offers important information on the role co-workers can play in the prevention of suicide.
