Warning Signs & Risk Factors
Many people who are feeling depressed or desperate enough to consider suicide give clues to how they’re feeling. You can be the first step towards help for someone you care about.
How to Help
If you’re worried someone may be suicidal, there are actions you may take to help the person feel supported: listening, asking direct and open-ended questions, and getting help.
“It’s really helped a lot just being able to talk about things. It’s really good to have friends like the Samaritans.”
