If your loved one is thinking about suicide, take the fourth step and #BeThe1To help them connect to resources. Helping someone with thoughts of suicide connect with ongoing supports can help them establish a safety net for those moments they find themselves in a crisis. One way to start helping them find way to connect is to work with them on creating a safety plan. You may want to include a list of all individuals and resources to contact when a crisis occurs including the Lifeline, 1-800-273-TALK (8255), family, friends, teachers, coaches, or therapists. The My3 app is a safety planning and crisis intervention app that can help develop these supports and is stored conveniently on your smartphone for quick access. #SuicidePreventionMonth #SPM19
