Understandably, we may feel extremely cautious about how to approach or talk to someone who is having suicidal thoughts; we may be worried about saying or doing the 'wrong thing' – and this often creates a barrier to helping.

In this pocket guidebook, Joy Hibbins, founder of the charity Suicide Crisis (which runs an award-winning Suicide Crisis Centre which has attracted international attention) shares her invaluable experience of helping people through suicidal crisis.

This book will show you how to:
• Understand the complexity of suicidal feelings and what may lead to a crisis
• Be aware of factors that can increase someone's risk of suicide
• Directly ask someone about suicidal thoughts
• Build empathy and a strong connection with the individual in crisis
• Learn strategies to support someone and help them survive

The fact that you care, and you want to help, can make such a difference to someone who is in need of support.

About the Author:

Joy Hibbins is the founder and chief executive of charity Suicide Crisis. Their crisis centre has attracted national and international interest because of its zero-suicide achievement: there has never been a suicide of a client under their care. Joy has given evidence about their work to a UK parliamentary select committee, and their work has fed into the Ministry of Health's new suicide prevention strategy in New Zealand.
