Suicide may feel like a solution when one is hopeless and in distress. Those who consider suicide are often in terrible emotional pain. But pain can be healed. Suicide IS preventable.


This pain is temporary – but suicide is a permanent solution. When one can share this pain with others, talk openly about the thoughts of suicide, and feel supported, it is often the first step toward hope, healing, and positive change.

Suicide Education and Support Services (SESS) is dedicated to providing resources to prevent suicide and offering support to those who have lost someone to suicide.
