Talking About Suicide

If you are worried about a friend, it is a good idea to ask them how they have been doing and whether they have thought about suicide. They are not going to get the idea to kill themselves just by you asking. They actually may be thankful for someone to talk to. The next step is to help your friend get help. With help, things can get better. Do not ever promise your friend to keep this a secret. Suicide is not something to take lightly and keep a secret. Find someone you can trust—a teacher, elder, pastor, parent or counsellor—and talk with them about your concerns. For more info, call one of the numbers listed in this section.
