There has been a disturbing amount of suicides in the Lubbock area this week, mostly among those high school age and older. Hardy said that many times, people resort to suicide because they feel there is no other option for them, and that this week’s deaths should be a “wake-up call” to the community that this needs to be talked about. He insisted that one of the most important things you can do to help someone who’s considering suicide is to reach out and talk to them, even if it’s a difficult subject.

Hardy also went over several warning signs for people considering suicide,such as a sudden change in daily patterns and withdrawing from others. He encourages anyone who is either considering suicide or know someone who is to call Contact Lubbock at 756-8393.
