Project Semicolon and Suicide Warning Signs

Project Semicolon is an organization dedicated to the prevention of suicide.  Participants received a temporary tattoo symbolizing how "your story is not over".  They also received information on Ask, Listen, Refer, the Interactive Stress and Depression Screener, and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

According to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the following signs may mean someone is at risk for suicide.  Risk is greater if a behavior is new or has increased and if it seems related to a painful event, loss, or change. 

  • Talking about wanting to die or to kill themselves
  • Looking for a way to kill themselves, like searching online or buying a gun
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live
  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain
  • Talking about being a burden to others
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Withdrawing or isolating themselves
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge
  • Extreme mood swings

If you or someone you know exhibits any of these, seek help by calling the Lifeline at 1-800-273-(8255).


Jefferson College Suicide Prevention Training Program

      //dev.jeffco.edu/sites/default/files/images/ask%2C%20listen%2C%20refer.jpg

This program was designed to help faculty, staff, and students prevent suicide by teaching you to:

  • Identify people at risk for suicide
  • Recognize the risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs of suicide
  • Respond to and get help for people at risk

   
This program takes about 20 minutes to complete.  It is intended to be educational rather than therapeutic.
