Supporting Someone

It’s a myth that talking directly about suicide will put the idea in someone’s head. Here are some ideas to help start a conversation:

“I’ve noticed that you haven’t been yourself lately. Is everything okay?”

“I’m worried about you. Can we talk about what’s troubling you?”

“You seem (down/sad/angry/unhappy) lately. I’m worried that you might be thinking of hurting yourself or suicide. Can we talk about this?”
