We can't always prevent a young person from attempting suicide, but we can reduce the risk of death. In addition toproviding love and support and finding help for him or her. We can also take some simple steps that help ensure that a difficult situation doesn't become a tragedy. 89-95% of people who survive a suicide attempt do not go on to die by suicide, so removing lethal means from the home can be critical to the outcome. The Suicide-Proofing initiative aims to educate parents about simple steps they can take to reduce the risk of suicide in their homes. By Suicide-Proofing our homes, we can help eliminate youth suicides in Rhode Island.
