SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR BELOVED SPONSORS AND COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Engage the person at risk in a personable way, use eye contact, give your full attention, don’t act distracted.
Explore their situation from his or her point of view by encouraging the open expression of their personal concerns. Show that you want to understand their feelings.
If the person is indeed contemplating suicide, you need to inquire into the reasons why these events and feelings are leading to a consideration of suicide at this time. Why now?
Use closed questions that require a yes/no answer. Be specific. Your assessment is a combination of gut feelings and an assessment of risk factors you have learned about.
