Mental Health Resources

Help and Resources in Our Communities

Mental health is a very heavy topic. Below are several resources for finiding help in our communities.

Videos

Introduction

Part 1

This is a series of 10 short videos giving helpful advice about mental health. Mike Maher is a licensed mental health counselor and has a heart for helping those who may be struggling with an emotional issue. Our goal in recording these videos is to help you walk with someone who may be struggling with mental health issues. Mike will define what mental health is (and isn’t) and then he will give you practical steps of things to say and do to help you help someone you love who may be experiencing some emotional issues like anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and more.

What To Do

if someone is displaying signs

  • Take it SERIOUSLY!
  • Ask the question, “Are you thinking about suicide?” This will show the person you are concerned about them, and will open communication, allowing the person to express their thoughts freely.
  • Listen intently and persuade them to get help. If able, guide them to a local resource such as this webpage.

Warning Signs of Suicide

  • Talking about wanting to die or kill oneself.
  • Sudden change in behavior; happier or calmer.
  • Suicide threats or previous suicide attempts.
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live.
  • Loss of interest in things one cares about.
  • Talking about being trapped or in unbearable pain.
  • Giving things away, such as prized possessions.
  • Purchasing a gun or stockpiling pills.
  • Talking about being a burden to others.
  • Increasing the use of drugs or alcohol.
  • Withdrawn or feeling isolated.
  • Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly.
  • Sleeping too little or too much.
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge.
  • Making arrangements; setting one’s affairs in order.
  • Themes of death or depression in conversation, writing, reading, or art.

Things To Know

A suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn’t mean help isn’t wanted.

  • People who take their lives don’t want to die – they 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 can save a life.
