When you spot a warning sign of suicide with someone you know, it’s important to  ask if they are thinking about suicide, identify reasons for them to live, and remove means, and refer the individual to an adult or professional. Several education opportunities are available across the state of Nebraska for students, individuals, schools, and practitioners. For more information, visit our Training & Education page.
