Short film: Practical ways to help a suicidal friend

5 Feb 2020 | Suicide Mortality Review Committee

This short film explores how Jason helps his flatmate Chris, who is experiencing suicidal thoughts. The film stops to ask what would you do now in this situation. You're given choices; if you don't make the right choice, it lets you choose again and explains why. 

You may find it hard to watch, particularly if you have been personally affected by suicide. It may be helpful to watch with someone you can talk to about it.

If you need immediate help, please call: 

  • Need to Talk? 1737 call or text (mental health, depression, and anxiety counselling)

  • Suicide Crisis Helpline: 0508 828 865 | 0508 TAUTOKO; 12 noon to 12 midnight (those in distress, or those who are concerned about the wellbeing of someone else).
