How to tell someone you are thinking about suicide
Telling someone else you are thinking about suicide can be hard. It can feel like stepping into the unknown – what will happen when I say these things out loud? How will the person respond?
You may have had previous experiences that have resulted in emergency services, including the police getting involved or being taken to hospital against your will.
You might be worried about hurting the people you care about.
You might be feeling like you don’t even know where to start, or that there is no one reason you are thinking about suicide.
These are very valid thoughts and concerns. It’s so important we reach out when we need support and learn how to have these hard conversations.
