If you think someone is considering suicide, don't be scared to break the silence. Remember QPR:
QUESTION -- ask if they are having suicidal thoughts (in the affirmative, such as "Are you having thoughts of hurting yourself?" rather than "You're *not* having suicidal thoughts, are you?")
PERSUADE -- listen carefully, then suggest that they let you help.
REFER -- contact an adult or a lifeline to get help.
