The Four Steps to Help Programme focuses on providing a mantra for youth suicide pevention, four simple steps that will allow any of us to:
- become more aware of our friends, peers and those around us everyday
- recognise the warning signs of suicidal and pre-suicidal behaviours
- ask the right questions at the right time
- know when to seek help for ourself or others
We all need to know and understand that there is always someone that we can turn to in our life and talk about the issues facing us without fear of rejection if we are prepared to take the first step.
What is much more challenging is being prepared to take that first step for someone else; to face possible rejection or ridicule by being prepared to use the Four Step Programme to potentially save a life.
