If your friend mentions something suicide or self-harm,
take them seriously,
If you believe that they’re in danger,
call 911 or the Poison Control Center immediately.
Your friend’s life is more important than their privacy.
have you ever had someone just
want to end it all permanently?
It’s never easy to think about her here.
Yes, life can get so complicated and overwhelming.
It’s hard to even imagine that things would ever get better again.
But most people bounce back.
Unfortunately, some don’t.
Suicide is a tragedy that affects everyone.
And it’s one of the leading causes of death for people 24 and younger.
Here’s what to do
if you suspect your friend who might be having thoughts of suicide.
Tip 1: Learn to recognize dangerous signs.
Has your friend talked about feeling hopeless or anxious?
Have you noticed the change of your friend's behaviour
acting withdrawn, sleeping less, sleeping a lot more?
Maybe they’re abusing alcohol or drugs.
Giving away their belongings
Maybe your friend has even talked about hurting themselves
or worse, wanting to die.
For a complete checklist of suspect behaviors,
pause and print out our worksheet.
Tip 2: Initiate a dialogue in a non-judgmental way.
Sit with your friend down In a comfortable or a familiar environment
where the two of you can talk privately freely
Start by telling your friend how much you care about them
but some other behaviours have concerned you.
Refer to our worksheet for ideas on how this conversation might flow.
If you determine that your friend is in danger,
and then they need help immediately,
please call 911
Household items like pills or razor blades,
they quickly become lethal weapons in the hands of the suicidal person.
Tip 3: React with feeling
If your friend does confide in your thoughts on suicide,
be compassionate and make it known that you’re there to listen.
Don’t aim to change their mind.
Start an argument or give advice.
Many people who attempt suicide don’t actually wanna die.
they just want their suffering to end
and suicide seems like the only avenue.
Engage in conversation with your friend
and find out what’s hurting him.
Tip 4: Shift the focus from sources of pain
to resources for treatment.
In addition to external challenges,
your friend might also be fighting internal demons
that require professional care.
Depression, anxiety, other mood disorders
are often present in the suicidal.
Many of these illnesses can be diagnosed and treated.
Encourage your friend to seek help
and offer to work with them to locate a mental health professional or clinic.
We strongly recommend leaping their family members into this process.
Tip 5: Lastly, stay connected
Even after your friend has sought help,
he seems to be on the path to healing.
Encourage other friends, roommates or family members
to check in on your friend during this vulnerable time.
This is an especially important step.
Since many suicides occur in a period of a poor improvement.
Listen, this video is a starting point.
Please do your own independent research to identify more resources.
But here are few we recommend,
You can save a life
just by reaching out to someone who’s in need.
