Did you know that, on average, 700 Oregonians die of suicide every year? Or that it’s estimated that more than five million people in the United States have been directly affected by suicide? Most suicidal individuals don’t want to die. They just want to end the pain they are experiencing. Suicidal crises tend to be brief. We are here to help.
We’re the Suicide Lifeline. If you’re concerned that a friend or loved one may be having suicidal thoughts, call us and we will help you help them. Early action is important. When suicidal behaviors are detected early, lives can be saved. Call and you’ll be connected to a trained, caring crisis worker who will listen and help find the right course of action to help your friend or loved one back to a happier, healthier life. Free, confidential and available twenty four hours a day. 1 (800) 273 TALK (8255).
