Breaking the stigma of mental illness.
If you think someone is considering suicide, don’t be scared to break the silence. Remember QPR:
QUESTION — ask if they are having suicidal thoughts.
PERSUADE — listen carefully, then suggest that they let you help.
REFER — contact an adult or a lifeline to get help.
