Helping after a crisis

Your role doesn't end when the immediate crisis is over. After a person has revealed his or her suicidal thoughts to you, you can still be helpful by:

  • Maintaining confidentiality – only share personal information with those who need to know in order to keep supporting and protecting the person
  • Checking in with the person when you see him or her again - don't avoid the person
