Subject: how to treat suicidal people

i wana give people some advice, how to treat suicidal people.

1.never make a promise to a suicidal or depressed person that u cant keep, let downs cud b the last straw for the the person and then the kill themselves.

2. dont tell the person they are looking for attention if they say they are suicidal.

3. take "cry for help" seriously.

4. give the person hugs if they are females, females love hugs from other females to comfort them.

5. dont cry in front of them cuz after all they came to you for help or a shoulder to cry on so try to hold back ur tears.

6. ask the suicidal or depressed person to seek help from an adult or doctor or teacher or phone childline on 0800 1111 (free of charge, its open 24hrs 7 days a week)
or ring samaritans on 0845 7909090 ( they are 24 hrs as well, but not a free number)

hope ive helped,
