What Can You Do to Help Someone You Think Might Be Suicidal:

Listen to what they have to say:

  • Don’t make judgments
  • Allow the person to talk and tell their story
  • Offer support, empathy, and compassion
Try to ask questions and get a feel for how the person is feeling:
  • Is the person having suicidal thoughts?
  • Is the person thinking of committing suicide?
  • Do they have a plan?
  • Ask questions that are honest, direct, and to the point.
  • Don’t agree to keep secrets.
  • Try to remain calm and avoid appearing alarmed.
Take Action:
  • Seek professional help: Call 911 in an emergency and the suicide hotline for further assistance: 1-(800) 273-TALK (8255)
  • Do not leave the individual alone and remove any potential weapons or items the person may use to harm themselves.
  • Don’t promise false statements of home and let the person know there are other options available to them.
  • Help the person make an appointment for treatment and follow up that appointment was scheduled.
