Suicide Prevention

Suicide Prevention at Sonora Behavioral Health Hospital

Youth suicide is a devastating, all-too-common occurrence throughout the United States. Social media, cell phone apps, and other forms of technology have made it virtually impossible for some young people to escape bullying and other forms of harassment, which can have horrifying consequences. At Sonora Behavioral Health Hospital, we not only recognize the severity of this tragic epidemic, but we are dedicated to being prevention activists.

By partnering with The Jason Foundation, Inc., we are able to reach countless children, adolescents, and families by providing them with the education they need to recognize the symptoms of suicidal ideation and intervene appropriately when necessary.

The compassionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated staff members here at Sonora Behavioral Health are available to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We know that adolescence can be a trying time for all young people, and we also recognize that sometimes all youth need is a little extra support and encouragement to overcome the challenges that they feel are defeating them.

Whether it be by taking part in one of our comprehensive programming options, or even by just speaking to one of our staff members, the lives of children and their families can be protected and nurtured.

If you are concerned that a young person in your life may be at risk for suicide, please do not hesitate to contact us. We want to help in any way that we can. However, in instances where you question a young person’s safety, or worry that he or she is in immediate harm, contact your local authorities, or call 911.

Join us in the fight to help children heal, increase their self-esteem, and put an end to the epidemic of youth suicide.

I want to thank the tremendous IOP staff for helping me reclaim my life. The therapists taught me how to manage my addiction and I will be forever in their debt. Thanks for literally saving my life.
