The North Dakota Department of Health has launched a new website focused on suicide prevention. It will include statewide events and resources as well as community events. Current facts and statistics about suicide in North Dakota, as well as information about the warning signs of suicide, are also included. “Suicide is a difficult topic to talk about in general, but if people don’t know where to find factual information most people will shy away from talking about it,” said Micki Savelkoul, Suicide Prevention Program director with the North Dakota Department of Health. The website contains information intended for the general public as well as resources specifically aimed at first responders, healthcare professionals, and other groups who may work with people who are suicidal.
