Are you worried that someone you know might be having suicidal thoughts?

Many people think that if you ask someone if they have suicidal thoughts that you can put the idea into their head. This is a myth.

Talking about suicide can be scary. However, the more people are willing to talk with a friend or family member about suicidal thoughts, the more likely they can help someone take positive steps.

The Zero Suicide Alliance training video is a helpful guide to having these conversations. It covers:

  • How to spot suicide warning signs
  • How to have a conversation with someone you’re worried about
  • Where to signpost to for further support
  • Understanding that suicide is preventable

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of the person you are talking to, please go to our crisis care page to find out how to get help.

If someone has hurt themselves and you think their injuries are life-threatening, call an ambulance on 999. You can do this whether you are with them in person or not. You will need to be able to give a location.
