This free graphic from the Mental Health Foundation offers an easy way to help anyone feeling suicidal.
There is an accompanying guide, published for World Suicide Prevention Day (10th September 2019) which outlines how to make a difference.

They go on to say:
“Prevention is also something that we can all individually help with. A short conversation with another person can sometimes be enough to make the difference between life and death for them.”
