Raising awareness in the community about suicidal distress and suicide is one of Valoris for Children and Adults of Prescott-Russell’s objectives.
The World Suicide Prevention Day will take place on September 10. It is an opportunity to inform the population on the importance of seeking help or supporting a loved one if they show signs of suicidal distress.
It is helpful to recognize some of the signs of suicidal distress so that you can take action quickly. These signs may include fatigue, discouragement, isolation, verbalizing the act, threats to end one's life, writing songs or letters about suicide, changes in appearance, aggressiveness or reckless actions. The majority of people who take their own lives announce their intentions to others, and these acts are often planned and calculated.
All of Valoris's services are confidential and can help a child or teenager in suicidal distress. The agency can determine the cause of the distress; find long-lasting personalized solutions and appropriate tools to help the person. Above all, our professionals are available and attentive to your needs. To learn more about Valoris's mental health services, contact them at any time at 1 800 675-6168.
