We all experience things differently and sometimes struggle to cope, but it’s ok to talk.
Are you worried about a family member, partner or friend who might be going through a tough time?
Are you worried that someone you know may be feeling suicidal?
It can be really hard to know what to say to them in this kind of situation.
On the other hand, few people go through life without, at some point, having a suicidal thought or feeling. Whilst suicidal feelings are more common than we like to admit, it doesn’t mean that it’s the answer.
It’s ok to ask about suicide. It doesn’t increase the risk! There is help available.
