Suicide Cluster Toolkit
Suicide is a tragedy, leaving a devastating impact on families, friends and loved ones. When multiple suicides or attempts happen together, called a suicide cluster or contagion, it’s important for schools, workplaces and communities to respond quickly. Together, we can help individuals deal with loss, navigate trauma and find resources to prevent more suicides from happening.
Share these social media posts to encourage community members and survivors of suicide loss to find help and support.
Losing someone to suicide is devastating. And grief feels different for everyone. The best thing you can do? Talk about it. Call, text or chat 988 for support, and find local grief support groups: https://sdsuicideprevention.org/survivors/survivor- support-groups-in-south-dakota/.
Talking about suicide doesn’t cause it. In fact, sharing stories of hope and healing from suicide actually helps us get through this crisis. If you’re concerned about a loved one or know someone affected by suicide loss, reach out and let them know you’re here to help.
There’s one way through a traumatic suicide event – and that’s together. If you’re having suicidal thoughts or living with grief from a loss, you’re never alone. Call, text or chat 988, and find other resources at https://sdsuicideprevention.org/get-help/ thinking-about-suicide/. Remember – you belong here.
