According to the Kennewick Police Facebook page, they were busy fielding several suicide related calls this weekend. Suicide has affected my immediate family but I am not the only one that wants you to know there are many different ways to seek help quickly, whether it's for you or a friend or loved one. You can call 911, and KPD also recommends the 24 hour Crisis Response Unit, 783-0500. In my experience, if you know someone who talks about or threatens suicide for months or even years, they mean it and need help now.
