Suicide prevention

For the safety of your family, this information is intended for use by North Seattle Pediatrics patients exclusively.

Feeling distressed and can’t find alone space to call? Text 988 anytime, day or night. It’s free. It’s confidential. And it’s at your fingertips.

If you are in crisis, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 800-273-8255.

You could also get help by texting “HEAL” to the Crisis Text Line at 741741.

If you’re under 21, you can call Teen Link at 866-TEENLINK (866-833-6546) and ask to talk to a peer.

If you or someone in your home is at risk of suicide or may be in the future, create a safety plan and reduce access to lethal means (objects or substances people could use to harm themselves).
