Today Is 'World Suicide Prevention Day': What Do You Do When You Suspect Someone Might Be Having Suicidal Thoughts?

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide is something we don't really talk about as a community, but in recent years the thinking on that has grossly changed. 
World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is an awareness day observed on 10 September every year, in order to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides, with various activities around the world. The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), collaborates with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health, to host World Suicide Prevention Day.
Suicidal thoughts, also known as suicidal ideation are thoughts about how to kill oneself, which can range from a detailed plan to a fleeting consideration and does not include the final act of killing oneself. 

My question for you' all today is what are you suppose to do when you suspect someone might be having suicidal thoughts.


  1. That's a very serious problem.

  2. Prayers will help in a long run. Also counselling.

  3. Advise the Person very well.

  4. Call fam and friends to help talk him or her out of it.
