Don’t discount simple solutions
Sometimes the best thing to do for suicide prevention is to have a direct conversation. Ask a blunt question like, “Are you feeling suicidal?” and really listen to the answer. It might sound basic, but people just want to be heard and to feel like they matter.
“You don’t have to have all the answers. You just have to be there.”
If someone you know is hurting, don’t stop encouraging them to seek support. There is a community rooting for them to keep going. Anyone can text 4hope to 741741 to get help immediately, or they can search for resources right here on StarkHelpCentral.com.
