Suicide should always be taken seriously. If someone is considering suicide, the best thing to do is to get them talking about it. It is never a mistake to talk about suicide with the person. If you are unsure how to handle the situation, find someone who can help you. Never be afraid to tell someone even if the suicidal person says they were not serious. Allow a trained professional to assess their risk for suicide.
