Suicide Prevention Resources:
If you are in crisis or know someone who is, here are two options for IMMEDIATE, CONFIDENTIAL HELP
-- available 24/7 and staffed by trained professionals.
We encourage all firms to have their employees put both the Suicide Prevention Hotline (800-273-TALK) and the Crisis Text Line (text "hello" to 741741) in their phones.
These lines of support are not solely intended to help people struggling with thoughts of self-harm, but also for those who care about them, and for people who are struggling and want help before considering self-harm.
Below are some resources for contractors to use in the fight to end suicide.
