Suicide loss survivors can have thoughts of suicide themselves as they cope with the loss of a loved one to suicide. If you have thoughts of suicide, please contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or your local mental health crisis hotline.

It’s important that you take care of yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually. Please consider joining a support group or talking to a therapist or faith leader for additional support on your grief journey. You are not alone.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
