Listen, Talk and Care

On World Suicide Prevention Day, let’s remind ourselves that we can all do more to help keep people safe.  A simple starting point is to listen, talk and care.
Listen.  When someone mentions  an emotional problem, listen with interest and non-judgementaly.  By giving them your full attention you’re showing support.  Offer to help or get them help.
Talk.  If you’re concerned about someone, ask them genuinely how they are and gently encourage them to talk about what’s troubling them.  If you’re carrying a problem, you can stop it from weighing you down by talking about it with someone.
Care.  A touch of kindness and care can make a huge difference to someone’s day.
