A suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. People who take their lives don't want to die—they just want to stop hurting. Suicide prevention starts with recognizing the warning signs and taking them seriously. If you think a friend or family member is considering suicide, you might be afraid to bring up the subject. But talking openly about suicidal thoughts and feelings can save a life.

On Monday October 9, 2017, the Zonta Club of Quaboag Valley will sponsor Talk Saves LivesTM – a 40-minute presentation by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Western MA, that covers the general scope of suicide, what the research has found to be the warning signs and risk factors of suicide, and the strategies that prevent it.
