To Save a Life...
• Realize someone might be suicidal.
• Reach out. Asking the suicide question DOES NOT increase risk.
• Listen. Talking things out can save a life.
• Don’t try to do everything yourself. Get others involved.
• Don’t promise secrecy and don’t worry about being disloyal.
• If persuasion fails, call your mental health center, local hotline, or emergency services.
