Supporting Someone

It’s a myth that talking directly about suicide will put the idea in someone’s head. Here are some ideas to help start a conversation:

“I’ve noticed that you haven’t been yourself lately. Is everything ok?”

“I’m worried about you. Can we talk about what’s troubling you?”

“You seem (down/sad/angry/unhappy) lately. I’m worried that you might be thinking of hurting yourself or suicide. Can we talk about this?”

Self Care

When you’re putting emotional energy and effort into supporting another person and keeping them from harm, it’s important that you look after yourself. Make your own health and wellbeing a priority.
