Setting up an Intervention for Suicide

intervention for suicide Setting up an Intervention for SuicideWhen you are worried that a loved one might attempt a suicide, it is important to consider the situation carefully and intervene when it becomes clear that suicide is a possibility. Setting up an intervention to prevent the suicide of a loved one takes courage, but it can also save a life. When a loved one is showing signs of suicidal behavior, taking action by setting up an intervention with a professional will make it possible to avoid the worst case scenario.

Inform a Health Professional About the Problem

An intervention with a loved one must start with prioritizing his or her health. When your loved one has threatened a suicide or is showing signs that he or she is at risk of attempting suicide, it is important to seek the help of a health professional.

Doctors, psychologists and similar health professionals are able to intervene directly and bring your loved one into a medical facility against his or her will. The risk of a suicide should never be taken lightly, particularly if your loved one has threatened to commit suicide or is engaging in self-destructive behavior. A doctor can have your loved one committed to an appropriate health facility to prevent a suicide attempt if the situation is dire.

Talk to Your Loved One

After getting an appropriate health professional involved, it is important to talk about the situation. A common mistake that occurs when dealing with suicide intervention is avoiding the emotional and stressful problems. Instead of avoiding the conversation, bring it directly to your loved one’s attention. That will make it easier to get through that suicide is not the answer.

Setting up an intervention occurs after getting help from the proper sources. When a loved one is threatening a suicide or has made an attempt, it is time to get involved and arrange an intervention with a medical professional.

    If you are trying to alienate the person you allegedly care for this is one of the most effective ways to do so. “Mental Health” is a scam; there is NOTHING that they can do except strip your friend of their right to manage their own person and juice them up on drugs. Your friend will hate you for punishing them by involving the authorities and having a 5150 put on their police record. If you’re looking to hurt your friends then involving an Institution is an effective way to screw them thoroughly. Think about how you would feel if your friend called the police or a doctor and had you put away against your will. Only douchebags call 911.

    Moderator: I think you’re a douchebag for encouraging people to have their friends incarcerated. I hope you are repeatedly raped for the rest of your life.
