how to deal with suicide attempt

Things to remember when dealing with a person who has attempted suicide
• Suicide is often due to mental illnesses such as depression or alcohol misuse.
• Many people who attempt suicide have a severe life problem such as marital or financial difficulties.
• Suicide is also associated with long-standing or serious physical illnesses.
• Never take a suicide threat lightly.
• Asking someone about suicidal thoughts does not make it more likely that they will end their life. On the contrary, most will feel relieved.

mental illness and identify relatives or friends who can provide support.
