Warning Signs

Suicide Warning Signs

IS PATH WARM is an acronym created by the American Association of Suicidology to help the public remember the immediate warning signs of suicide:

 


If you notice a combination of any of these signs, even if they're subtle changes, here's what you can do:

Ask - Ask your shipmate directly "are you thinking about killing​ yourself? Do you have a plan to kill yourself?"
Care - Tell your shipmate that you're concerned about him or her, without judgment. They may not show it, but they likely appreciate that someone cared enough to say something.
Treat - Take your shipmate to get help immediately by seeking a Navy chaplain, medical professional or trusted leader. Call 911 if danger is imminent. Help is available 24/7 through the Military Crisis Line. Call 1-800-273-TALK (Option 1), text 838255 from a mobile device or visit www.militarycrisisline.net.
