Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for all ages in the United States,
according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. While complex and tragic,
suicide can be prevented by knowing and understanding warning signs, risk
factors, and how to act when necessary.
Treatment may involve emotional support and medication. Hospitalization
may also be an option. If you feel you or someone you care about are at
an increased risk for suicide, please contact a mental health professional
or call a member of our 24/7 Psychiatric Emergency Services team at 973-625-6160
as soon as possible for guidance on specific interventions and treatment.
