Recommended Posts

  • Guest


Take the person seriously and offer your full attention

Stay Calm and in control of your own emotions, fears, or anger

Listen, listen, listen

Show compassion and concern

Be direct

Be positive and reassuring

Remove the means of committing suicide (pills, knife, gun) if safe to do so

Build hope



Don't judge

Don't offer advice

Don't say you know how they feel

Don't interrupt

Don't Agree to keep it a secret
