If you know someone whom you think may be suicidal, show that you care by:
- Listening to them with sincere concern for their feelings. Do not offer advice, but let them know that they are not alone.
- Sharing your feelings with them. If you feel that they may make a reckless decision, tell them that you are concerned. They need to know that they are important to you and that you care.
- Inquiring if they have had suicidal thoughts or if they have made a suicide plan in a straightforward and caring manner. If you feel you cannot ask the question, find someone who can.
- Call Life Management Center at 850-522-4485 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.
