Suicide

Suicide, or the intentional killing of oneself, is more common than murder or killing in war. If someone talks about committing suicide, you need to take it seriously and either provide them emotional support yourself or refer them to others who can. Those who have lost loved ones and friends to suicide also need special support.

Join our online support group for people affected by suicide – both people who have considered it and for people whose loved ones have committed suicide.
