How to Help

Ask

    • "Do you want to die?"
    • "Do you wish you were dead?"
    • "Have you thought of how you could kill yourself?"
  • Talk openly about suicide. Be willing to listen and allow the person to express feelings

Care

  • Care for the person. He or she may be in pain

  • Encourage the person to seek help
