Family Members and Caregivers

Family members and other caregivers are very important to suicide prevention and can be involved in many ways. They can help increase the protective factors in a person’s life—for example, by helping the person develop life skills and supportive relationships. They can also provide support during a suicidal crisis, encourage the person to seek and adhere to treatment, and help keep the person safe during periods of crisis.
