What To Do When Someone Is Suicidal

There are actions you can take to help someone when warning signs of suicide are detected. Introducing the topic of suicide will not put the idea into their head, instead, the person will probably feel relief that they can finally share and talk about it. Saying things out loud may help the person actually hear it for the first time and bring a new perspective to the situation.
