How Parents can Help

Take signals from teens seriously, trust your instincts and follow the FIVE STEPS*: 1) Establish a connection 2) In a caring non-confrontational way, ask the question, “Are you thinking about suicide?” 3) If “yes”, ask the teen whether s/he has a plan. If so, remove the planned method and any other potentially lethal weapons or medications 4) Offer some comforting comments (e.g., “You did the right thing to tell me”, “I will get you the help you need”). 5) Do not leave him or her alone until you get them help (e.g., take them to the ER for an evaluation) * (FIVE STEPS adapted from the RESPONSE program, ColumbiaCare Services, Inc.)
