Warning Signs of suicide include:

 Talking about wanting to die

 Looking for a way to kill oneself

 Talking about feeling hopeless or having no purpose

 Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain

 Talking about being a burden to others

 Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs

 Acting anxious, agitated or recklessly

 Sleeping too little or too much

 Withdrawing or feeling isolated

 Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge

 Displaying extreme mood swings

The more of these signs a person shows, the greater the risk. Warning signs are associated with suicide

but may not be what causes a suicide.

What To Do if someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide:

 Do not leave the person alone

 Remove any firearms, alcohol, drugs or sharp objects that could be used in a suicide attempt

 Call the New Mexico Crisis Line at 1-855-NMCRISIS (662-7474) or the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

 Take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional
