According to the CDC, approximately 123 Americans die by suicide each day. Understanding how to talk about and deal with suicidal thoughts is the first step in suicide prevention. Break the taboo by approaching the topic directly with compassion and clarity.

By learning the warning signs, starting the conversation, and knowing when and where to seek help, you can be sure that your loved ones (or even you yourself) can get through dark times. Hear directly from the AdventHealth Shawnee Mission behavioral health team on MyHealthKC.com.
