1 Explore invitations: look out for the warning signs that suggest suicide might be a risk

2 Sensitively but directly ask the person if they are thinking of killing themselves

3 Listen to the person's reasons for dying and for living

4 Review the risk that suicide poses: the when, where and how

5 Work with the person to construct a safe-plan to prevent the risk of suicide

6 Follow-up on the commitments that you and the person at risk have madeSOME Useful numbers
