Suicide starts out as just a brief thought

Then it becomes an option

Then a better and better option

Then it looks like the best way out

Finally it looks like the only way out

Intervention Versus Prevention

By the time someone reaches the point where suicide is an option, it means that they are feeling out of control of their own lives. Prevention is the key to avoiding a crisis from personal and job-related problems. Intervention is what you do to help once someone is already in crisis. Our goal is to provide the support and resources to someone before they are in crisis.
