An alert helper –
• is aware that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are sometimes missed, dismissed and avoided
• recognises when a person might be having thoughts of suicide
• engages a person with thoughts in direct and open talk about suicide
• listens to the person’s talk about suicide to show that they take the thoughts seriously
• knows the name and contact information of local suicide intervention resources
• moves quickly to connect the person with thoughts to someone trained in suicide intervention.
