Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre provides this booklet to help you: Recognise the signs of suicide; and Talk with someone you are worried about who may be thinking about suicide or showing signs of wanting to end their life. This booklet is translated into 23 different languages.
Brief Summary: Most of the time, people who think about suicide don’t want to end their life, but they want the emotional pain (or the physical pain) to stop. Talking to someone about suicide is not easy. Knowing how to ask about suicide may help save someone’s life. By talking to the person, you can: • Show a person that you care about them • Give hope by reassuring a person that things will not stay this way, the crisis will pass, and that they can get help • Support a person to seek help.
