Content Warning: Discussions of suicide and violence
If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, emotional distress, or suicidal ideation there is help available. In the US, you can talk to someone free and confidentially, 24/7 at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling 1-800-273-TALK(8255) or by dialing 988. You can initiate a free, confidential online chat with a crisis counselor via this link, or text the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.  

Sometimes, stress can be overwhelming. It can feel like there’s no way out. In the worst-case scenarios, those affected can harm or kill themselves. Being able to identify mental health warning signs—in yourself, friends, and family—can be life-saving. So what should you be on the lookout for?

In this episode, university extension educators Maria Pippidis and Jesse Ketterman are back to discuss some of the telltale signs that someone might be struggling across four categories: physical, emotional, environmental, and relational. Meanwhile, Keith Ohlinger, owner of Porch View Farm in Maryland, shares his experience dealing with stress, both in himself and his community. 

We’ll also cover how to open a conversation with someone who’s struggling, and what you can do to help them get back to a manageable place with their mental health. We’ll dispel some of the myths about suicide and share some common-sense solutions, even when those you’re reaching out to are reluctant to accept help.

Join us, as we learn how to look out for our loved ones and be there for each other.
