TOP 8 V2-1.jpg #BeThe1To ASK

If you think someone might be considering suicide, take the first step and #BeThe1To ask. Ask directly, “Are you thinking about killing yourself?


If you ask someone if they are thinking about suicide and they say yes, take the second step and #BeThe1To keep them safe. Separate them from anything they are thinking of using to hurt themselves.


If someone you know is thinking about suicide, take the third step and #BeThe1To be there. Listen to their reasons for feeling hopeless and in pain. Listen with compassion and empathy, but without judgment.


If someone you know is thinking about suicide, take the fourth step and #BeThe1To help them connect to resources. Help them build a support system so they have others to reach out to for help, whether it’s 800-273-TALK (8255), family, friends, clergy, coaches, co-workers, or therapists.


If someone you know tells you they've been thinking about suicide, don't forget to take the last step and #BeThe1To follow-up with them. It can make all the difference.
