According to statistics from The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, it has been estimated that there are 130 suicides per day in the USA on an average. The statistics also say that suicide is the 12th leading cause of death in the USA. 93% of adults surveyed in the USA believed that suicide can be prevented.

Although many factors can influence a person's decision to do that act, the most common reason is severe depression. If we ever come across a person who is contemplating taking their own life, we have to do everything we can in our capacity to convince them not to do that act.

If you ever come across someone who is contemplating suicide, you can advise them to call the crisis hotline number or try your best to convince them not to do it if they refuse to talk to anyone else. Even though you may not be an expert counselor, the following are a few things you can tell someone while trying to prevent them from taking their own life.
