How Can You Help Someone?

If you know someone who you think may be suicidal, show that you care by:

  • Listening to the person with sincere concern for his/her feelings. Do not offer advice, but let the person know that he/she is not alone.
  • Sharing your feelings with the person. If you feel that he/she may make a reckless decision, say that you are concerned. This person needs to know that he/she is important to you and that you care.
  • Inquiring – in a straightforward and caring manner – if he/she has had suicidal thoughts or has made a suicidal plan. If you feel you cannot ask the question, find someone who can.
