8 Lunch & Learn Resource MHN: Suicide Prevention Handbook: Know the warning signs: When someone you know appears suicidal, you might not know what to do. Learn warning signs, what questions to ask and how to get help. When someone says he or she is thinking about suicide, or says things that sound as if the person is considering suicide, it can be very upsetting. You may not be sure what to do to help, whether you should take talk of suicide seriously, or if your intervention might make the situation worse. Taking action is always the best choice. Here's what to do. Start by asking questions The first step is to find out whether the person is in danger of acting on suicidal feelings. Be sensitive, but ask direct questions, such as: How are you coping with what's been happening in your life? Do you ever feel like just giving up? Are you thinking about dying? Are you thinking about hurting yourself? Are you thinking about suicide? Have you thought about how you would do it? Do you know when you would do it? Do you have the means to do it? Asking about suicidal thoughts or feelings won't push someone into doing something self- destructive. In fact, offering an opportunity to talk about feelings may reduce the risk of acting on suicidal feelings. Look for warning signs You can't always tell when a loved one or friend is considering suicide. But here are some common signs: Talking about suicide — for example, making statements such as "I'm going to kill myself," "I wish I were dead" or "I wish I hadn't been born" Getting the means to commit suicide, such as buying a gun or stockpiling pills Withdrawing from social contact and wanting to be left alone Having mood swings, being emotionally high one day and deeply discouraged the next Being preoccupied with death, dying or violence Feeling trapped or hopeless about a situation MHN: Suicide Prevention Page 17 Increasing use of alcohol or drugs Changing normal routine, including eating or sleeping patterns Doing risky or self-destructive things, such as using drugs or driving recklessly Giving away belongings or getting affairs in order when there is no other logical explanation for why this is being done Saying goodbye to people as if they won't be seen again Developing personality changes or being severely anxious or agitated III. L&L Material: This questionnaire could be given to individual employees from the Wellness Center or during a L&L. Employees may share questionnaire with loved ones or friends they are concerned about. 8
