Talking to family about suicidal thoughts

The best way to receive help is to ask for it. Our family and friends may have the best intentions but probably don't know how to help us. Hoping to provide a reference point to everyone to talk to family about suicidal thoughts.

On 10th September 2020, I decided to have an impromptu discussion with my parents on my suicidal thoughts. It was definitely a bit uncomfortable for them and myself. I hope it helped to create a little bit of awareness on the importance of talking to your family about suicidal thoughts.

Are you going to have a conversation with your family today?
