Suicide Help Line

Suicide touches everyone—all ages and incomes; all racial, ethnic, and religious groups; and in all parts
of the country. The emotional toll on those left behind remains long after the event. In Indiana, more
people die every year by suicide than by homicide, and the overall rate of suicide continues to
dramatically climb. The statistics are alarming, and death by suicide is one of our state’s most
concerning health issues. Learn how to get help for yourself or a loved one and know the warning signs
and risk factors for suicide.
