    What would you say to someone who is contemplating suicide?

    What would you say to someone who is contemplating suicide, or if you have experienced loss from suicide, what would you say beforehand?

    I suppose it really depend on the circumstances.
    I may be in the minority but here but I am in favor of euthanasia for people suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma. In fact I have my own DNR on file just in case.
    Having said that people who are physically healthy only consider suicide when they're depressed/unhappy with events in their life.
    They're viewing a momentary issue/circumstance as lifetime hell.
    I would try to remind them that whatever they are going through is just one page or one chapter in their book of life.
    Nothing lasts forever including bad times.
    Look for examples of people who've overcome similar challenges.
    Find a new dream to pursue & see the nuggets of humor in failure.
    Always have something on your calendar to look forward to.
    The world may not owe you anything but you owe yourself the world!

    That you're going to take them to seek medical assistance because you love them and want them to live.

    Nothing is worth losing your life over. If not for yourself, then live for the people who love you. Tough times do not last. This too shall pass.

    Talk to them...and keep talking. Better yet, let them start talking and just listen. In most cases a person contemplating suicide is doing so as a cry for help. Sometimes a good talk will do it, but in other cases there might be deeper problems that may require professional help.either way intervention is needed even if they may not say it.

    Don't do it.  Whatever you're going through, it's is temporary.  You can get through it.  Seek out the Lord.
