Suicide is the act of ending, or taking, one's own life. Someone who is thinking about suicide needs help right away. Listen to the person. Even if you do not know what to say or do to help, you can start by letting the person know that you care.
Talk to the person about how to get help. Help is available through suicide hotlines and through therapy and other treatments.
