Feeling suicidal can happen to anyone. And it could be brought on by almost anything. Like abuse, bad relations or bad life experience. But it could be something else. You might not even be sure why you feel like this. But however down or hopeless you’re feeling, we are always here for you. You're not alone.


Feeling suicidal can affect anyone, no matter how old they are. People may want to end their life because:


  • they feel it'll make their pain stop

  • they feel it'll take negative feelings away

  • they think it'll mean other people in their life will know how much they're hurting

  • they feel suicide will give them control. 


There are always other ways to cope, even if it doesn’t feel like there is right now. You can talk to our counsellor about how you’re feeling.



Caring for your friend is the best thing you can do. Just being there for them can help them start to feel better. Listen to their story. Your friend might tell you why they feel sad or hopeless. Say you understand why they might feel like this – but tell them you don’t want them to react by ending their own life.


People who feel suicidal often feel hopeless. But you can give hope back to your friend. Suggest future plans or things you can do together. It could be anything, like a bike ride together or a trip to the cinema each week. It could even be something small like playing a computer game together. Just remember that it’s not all up to you to help them cope.


Tell your friend how important they are to you. Think carefully about them and tell them why they are a good friend to you.

You can also encourage your friend to talk to our counsellor or a doctor. It really helps to talk to someone. They might find it easier to talk to someone who they don’t know.


Remember that you're not responsible for stopping your friend from hurting themselves. It’s important that you get support too. If helping your friend is difficult or upsetting, you can talk to our counsellor for support too.
