People who talk about suicide won't actually do it. Aren't they just looking for attention?
Almost everyone who dies by suicide has given some clue or warning. Do not ignore suicide threats. Statements like, “You’ll be sorry when I’m dead,” or “I can’t see any way out” – no matter how casually or jokingly said – may indicate serious suicidal intent. Even if the person is just seeking attention and has no plans to act, it is always better to address the statements or indications from the person at risk.
