Here's how to help them:

  • Don't be interrogative to persons who have suicidal thoughts.


  • Find a counsellor.


  • Take every threat seriously.


  • Don't treat persons with suicidal thoughts as if they were mad.


  • Parents should not compare them to others but instead, try to affirm the positive in them.

  • Tell them how important life is.


  • Help them to explain their feelings.
