How you can help someone

If you know someone who needs help and is potentially suicidal, doing nothing is not an option. Here is a link to a charity called Mind which explains some of the likely indicators.

Mind advise that you can help by:

  • Trying not to judge
  • Talking to the person about how they feel
  • Encouraging them to get help by ring SRS on 0300 123 2825
  • Asking them how you can help
  • Helping them stay safe
  • Look out for warning signs
  • Find out what support is available
  • Create a support plan
  • Plan for crisis
