Everyone needs to be aware of these eye-opening statistics, but, what can we do to lower these figures?

Recognise the warning signs

Someone who is feeling suicidal is likely to give warning signs of what they are going through. These can include personality changes, losing interest in day-to-day activities and dramatic mood swings. Major warning signs would include someone talking about harming or killing themselves, writing or talking about death a lot and self-destructive behaviour.

Make sure you listen

Listening to someone who is opening up about their mental health is important. Make sure you listen to what they’re saying, and even if you don’t agree, at least try and see it from their perspective. Remember, it may have taken a lot for them to open up to someone, and by listening to them, they will know you respect their feelings.
