Take Care of Yourself After Treatment in the Emergency Department

This website was created to help you as you begin to work through challenges that led you to attempt to take your life. It offers information about moving ahead after your treatment in the emergency department and provides resources for more information about suicide and mental illnesses.

 

We believe that suicide is preventable and that suicide prevention works. In order to accomplish our mission and goals, we use the public health model along with media campaigns and education to raise awareness of suicide. We use an educational approach to dispel the myths about suicide, and to let others know about the realities surrounding what the former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher called a "public health crisis." On the following pages you will find information and resources that will help you if you are suicidal or if you know someone who is.
