How can I help someone else right now?

When you are worried about someone you care about, a partner, friend or family member it is sometimes hard to know how to offer them help.  You may have noticed they are feeling hopeless or you may have identified some warning signs of suicide. It is important to offer them help but equally important to look after yourself.  It will be difficult to ask the hard question “Are you thinking of suicide?” but you might be the only person who asks.
