A combination of individual and social factors contribute to the risk of suicide. Risk factors are characteristics associated with suicide; they might not be direct causes.
If you know someone who is considering suicide, do not leave them alone. Try to get them to seek immediate help from their doctor or the nearest hospital emergency room, or call 911. Remove any access they may have to firearms or other potential tools for suicide, including medications.
Protective factors help individuals from suicidal thoughts and behavior.
