For many people, it's not about wanting to die, it's about making the pain and dark moods disappear.
Having these feelings doesn't have to end in suicide. The next step is about talking.
Talking about our fears and feelings can be difficult; even to those we love and care about. Not talking can stop people that we care about recognising that something is wrong and offering to help.
Even asking if someone is 'ok', can be unbearable for both the person asking the question and the person answering. But the more we talk about suicide openly, the sooner we reduce the fear and stigma that surrounds it.
Talking helps. It really does. Low mood can be lifted. And there's always someone ready to listen.
