We know it’s hard — maybe the hardest thing you’ve ever done, but talking to someone about suicide could be one of the most important conversations you’ll ever have. If you're worried about someone, simply letting them know you care can make a huge difference.
If you’ve noticed that a friend or loved one hasn’t been themselves lately, if they’re avoiding social situations, seem low or flat, or you just know something isn’t right – it might be time to have a talk. You can find more information on some of the warning signs here.
Our research shows people who feel suicidal want you to listen to them and show you care. They need your support – you don’t need to be a professional.
#YouCanTalk is a joint national campaign aimed at giving people the confidence to respond to friends and family when they need help and guide them to the right support services. Find out more about the collaborative campaign here.
