This show may have been difficult to listen to. If so please remember the contact numbers to reach out for support - contact Lifeline on 131 114
For those who support someone who is at risk of suicide, please remember Lifeline's steps to address suicide potential:
- ASK: If you think someone is on the edge, ask them 'are you thinking about suicide?' Make sure you ask directly and unambiguously.
- LISTEN AND STAY WITH THEM: If they say 'yes', they are suicidal, listen to them and allow them to express how they are feeling. Don't leave them alone.
- GET HELP: Call a crisis line or 000 if a person's life is in danger. If the risk is not immediate, take them to a GP or psychologist to help them get long-term support.
- WHERE TO GET HELP: If you or someone you know needs help, contact Lifeline on 131 114; the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467 or Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800
