    If it's a stranger, all you can do is keep them talking until help gets there. If it is friend you probably have some idea of what the problem might be. When I was placed in this situation I simply told her how much I would miss her if she was gone.I also told her I understood her feeling like this was the only option that was left. I calmly told her that I thought everyone should have the right to end their life if they chose to do so. We talked for an hour or so and I told her I was going inside while she made up her mind. I hoped that by repeatedly explaining that I felt she had the right to do what ever she wanted it allowed her to quit thinking about it so much.  It was a relief to hear the motor of the car shut off in a couple of minutes. That was an indication to me that it would be ok to actually leave her alone,

    I'll tell the person this, "Who you are makes a BIG difference in the world."

    "You are feeling all sorts of contradictory things, I can understand, but I also believe that this is NOT the best option for you. Life is too sacred to be taken away by anyone much more ourselves."

    Keep speaking the the individual and keep his/her mind busy, the aim is to distract him/her from achieving that evil goal.

    This moment may seem terrible but there will be better moments, hang in there! Consider seeking a psychologist to gain advice about how to solve problems that are making you want to commit suicide.

    Best wishes xx

    id say- "i think you should try having a word with a cancer patient or an aids patient who doesnt have a life- technically-  you are trying to kill something they would die to have.
    count your blessings. killing yourself wont solve anything- it will just make life complicated to the ones who live!"

    I would let him know/see how beautiful life is. We're given a chance to live and experience the joy of living. Why waste that precious moment? Life is beautiful, you just have to widely open your eyes and take a look at what's instore for you.

    It is a very interesting position, I find.  I had suicidal thoughts from time to time, but I never acted upon them.  I knew how painful depression was.

    I was also able to come up with words like that.  Not quite like that, I never said people were selfish.  You don't know that.  Some cancer patients want to die sooner because they could not cope any longer.  People who kill themselves are NOT selfish, they cannot cope any longer.

    To say that they are selfish is the same as to say that people who are in love are crazy.  It is the chemistry of the brain that is changed when we are sad or happy or in love. Suicidal is just an extreme.

    Talking?  It is difficult, it depends who do you talk to.  My grandmother committed suicide, but she had her reasons, even though I always thought the solution might have been easier, but I never judged her. Ever. But then my father started talking about suicide and I was dismissing it as rubbish.  "It could not possibly be so bad!"  It was.  I tried to reason with him.  One day, he was leaving and saying that he is going to do it.  I panicked.  I had no idea what to do - we called 911.  Apparently, if you suspect it might happen, a person should be hospitalized immediately.  It is hard to judge how determined a person is.

    Then I had my share of days in a psychiatric facility and I saw those who tried, but not succeeded.  I knew that was the whole program for them.  And one day, my turn came - I was suicidal, this time enough to do it.  By this time I knew the strategy - you don't advertise, you just do it.  But I did not.  And I will tell you how it feels - IT IS HELL.  Nobody can help you immediately, pills take time to kick in.

    Please, don't say you understand.  Because you don't.

    i would tell him/her that this is not you wanting to die, just a part of you that does not want to exist anymore or cannot cope with reality any longer and is no longer needed so just let it go. everything passes and so shall this...

    To the people saying suicide is a selfish act - you are wrong. Suicide is an irrational response to ones problems. That being said, when a person gets in a situation like that they are hurting very badly. The person thinks it's the only way to solve the problem. Obviously, it is not always the best solution.

    If you are in a situation with a suicidal person I would try to talk to them and and somehow get help at the same time. If the person has a weapon then you have to keep your distance. Just remember you are not trained for this so getting help immediately is the best solution.

    I would tell them that when they die thats it. Everyone else will keep living but they will never get a chance to reach their potential..

    Keep talking to him/her and contact help right away. If help does not come talk to him/her about there feelings and ask them why the person wants to kill them selfs and talk about why it does not make since and that you have a family that loves you. Start to no the person a little and call 911 and at lease you would no about him and why the person wants to kill him self and you have information about the person. Also why kill your self if you have not experience the full time of your life.

    I'd ask him what he/she wanted me to tell the people who love him and whose worlds will be destroyed without his presence.
