  1. Take any suicidal talk or behavior seriously. If you notice a person is thinking about suicide – it's a cry for help.
  2. If you notice a friend or relative is deeply depressed for a lasting period of time, start a conversation first. You may ask the following question: "Recently, I have noticed some differences in you and wondered how you are doing."
  3. Show your support to a person who experiences constant stress or depression. You can say: "You are not alone in this. I’m here for you."
  4. Do not hesitate to offer your help even if a person says he/she doesn’t need it.
  5. Address for a professional advice of a psychologist or find a group which specializes in ‘Understanding and preventing suicide’ approach.
