"While it is not possible to predict suicide with absolute certainty, most people contemplating suicide show direct and indirect signs of distress. If we know how to recognize those signs, we can intervene to help. The following signs should prompt you to seek immediate help for you or a loved one:
Talking about wanting to die or to kill oneself
Looking for a way to kill oneself, such as searching online or obtaining a gun
Talking about feeling hopeless, feeling like a burden, or having no reason to live"
