You can potentially save someone’s life if they’re feeling suicidal. You don’t need to be a therapist to do this.  Many people that have suicidal thoughts just want to be heard and without judgement. Reaching out to someone who might be suicidal can make them feel less alone. Showing that you care and being kind to them can make a real difference to their day. 

Ending Shame and Guilt

Try to encourage an open discussion. Talk openly about mental health so people around you find it easier to talk about what’s troubling them. 

In an Emergency

If you think someone is in immediate danger, call 999. If you feel like you’re in immediate danger of suicide, please call 999.

If the threat is not imminent, try to encourage the other person to seek help.

Ask if They’re Suicidal

It is perfectly to ask someone if they are suicidal. Asking this question will not make them suicidal. You never know, you might be the first person to show you care.

It’s important that you remember men and minorities are much less likely to seek help. This means they have an increased risk of suicide.

If someone is feeling completely hopeless or helpless, they may feel unable to make any positive changes in their life. In addition to feeling hopeless or helpless, they might also be pretending to feel ok. This can be exhausting. It may also mean they spend a lot of time at home so they don’t have to pretend they’re ok all the time.

If you think someone is in immediate danger, call 999. If you feel like you’re in immediate danger of suicide, please call 999.
