"If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them."

A tiger walks into a liquor store…there’s no punchline here.

Is that… a frisbee?

He just wants to play catch

I want to know the story behind this

I want dat 911 call the clerk is making

Dude who would we even send to that? I know AC ain’t gonna take it. Wildlife?

Send an officer to verify presence of tiger. Contact Carolina Tiger Rescue. Demand pix from responding PD unit. Consider having EMS on standby.

THIS BEAUTIFUL PERSON IS TRYING TO TAKE HER LIFE. SHE’S ALREADY OVERDOSED AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I’VE DONE ALL I CAN AND IM SITTING HERE CRYING PLEASE, IF YOU’RE ONLINE, PLEASE TALK TO HER

Step 1: where is the person? If you have an address that’s best; call 411 (information) and ask to be connected to the police department for that town (or county). If you are currently in the same town as the individual, you can call 911 directly. If you don’t know where the person is at all (you don’t know their address or even their town or state) call 911 and let them know you don’t know where the person is but you believe they have attempted to overdose. Give 911 as much information about the person as possible (full legal name, date of birth, phone number, cell phone carrier, any online handles, physical description, name of persons they may be with, etc.) so that your calltaker can use that information to attempt to get a location on the person and notify the correct agency. Alternately, if you can convince the suicidal subject to call 911 themselves, that makes everything MUCH EASIER.

Step 2: make phone call as advised above based on what information you have.

Step 3: now it is in the hands of your local emergency services.

This has been an introductory guide to reporting potential suicide attempts so that the person can get help. An attempted suicide is absolutely a reason to involve emergency services.
