VIDEO: Preventing suicide - numbers to call for immediate help


All week we've been focusing on suicide prevention, what to say and how to get help for people at risk.

On Friday, Karin sat down with Beth Glass, a representative from NAMI, which stands for the National Alliance of Mental Illness, and Annette Gary from STARCARE, formerly known as MHMR.

NAMI hosts a support group every Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Oakwood Baptist Church at 60th and Avenue U. Call 783-9268 for more information.

STARCARE offers immediate support for a five-county area in and around Lubbock, including Lubbock, Lynn, Cochran, Hale, Hockley.

You can call them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 740-1414.

QPR - (806) 392-1886

Contact Lubbock - (806) 765-8393
