  2. 2. HOW TO HELP SOMEONE WHO IS SUICIDAL D epression can feel un- bearable to the point where someone thinks life isn’t worth living anymore. In such situations, it can be distressing if you’re worried that someone might try to take their life, or even that they’re thinking about it. It’s normal to feel like you have no answers, but there are ways to help such people.
  3. 3. F irst, you don’t want to wait un- til it’s too late. When you start getting concerned, bring up the issue with the individual. Ask them if they’re thinking about it. Don’t worry, this won’t increase the risks of them acting on their fee- lings, but it does ensure that you can start finding the support they need to stay safe. Offering to help has to come from a place of knowledge, so it helps to know the warning signs of someone who may be at risk. People with sui- cidal feelings talk about wanting to kill themselves, with some going ahead to search for options on how to do it. They may talk about feeling hopeless, trapped, or being a bur- den to their families. Extreme be- haviour (mood swings, aggression, rage) are also signs to look out for, as is increased usage of drugs or alcohol. When you start getting concerned, bring up the issue with the individual. Ask them if they’re thinking about it.
