Editorial: Help prevent suicides

(Continued)

But for the most part, suicides aren’t the subject of news articles unless they are committed in a public setting. What often creates a headline is the remorse that someone has after a friend or family member commits suicide.

Urge them to get help.

Dial 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which has operators ready to talk. That number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Don’t come to regret your inaction.

How to get help If you're having suicidal thoughts, reach out. Talk to family, friends or medical professionals, such as the behavioral health team at the Madison County Community Health Center. The phone number is (765) 442-0562. Another option is dialing 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which has operators ready to talk 24/7. That number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
