Suicide Survivor Resources
A “suicide survivor” is a term used for an individual who has survived the loss of a loved one to suicide. Losing a loved one to suicide can bring a flood of overwhelming emotions for those left behind. On this page, you will find helpful information for suicide survivors and for the people who may be looking for ways to support them.
TEEN TEXT LINE
A new Nevada program connects teens and young adults over text to support each other through mental health challenges. The text line is unique as it’s staffed by trained young adults, a highly successful, evidence-based peer support model. It’s as easy as texting a friend when you’re feeling stressed or a little down. Anyone ages 14 to 24 in need of non-crisis support can confidentially text (775) 296-8336 from noon to 10 p.m., seven days a week, 365 days per year. Another differentiating feature of the NV Teen Text line program is the ability for parents and other concerned loved ones to prompt an initial text to their teens by sending a request to NVtextline@gmail.com.
The NV Teen Text Line is operated by the Nevada nonprofit, NAMI Western Nevada. Click HERE for more information.
