What can I do if I someone I know is suicidal?

Always take suicidal comments very seriously. When a person says that he or she is thinking about suicide, consider them to be displaying signs of an impending suicide. Get professional help immediately.

If someone tells you that you need to keep his or her suicidal intentions a secret, never agree. Under no circumstances can you keep a secret that could cause someone's death. You would be responsible for allowing them to die if you kept it secret, something that can haunt you for the rest of your life. Instead, take the steps necessary to prevent a suicide.
