Suicide Awareness, Prevention and Support

- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
- Each County in Minnesota has a specific crisis number:
- Crisis Text Line – text “MN” to 741741 (standard data and text rates apply)

Information Packet for Loved Ones Following a Suicide
If you are a professional who has contact with those bereaved by suicide, NAMI Minnesota offers informational packets to distribute to families with information and resources to connect them to much needed support. This free packet is a tool for professionals who may not be aware of available resources but want to provide some practical help. Our hope is that families will know as soon as possible that there is help available to them. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
