This is a brief simulated conversation about asking a person who may be suicidal how they are feeling, and correctly referring them to receive help.
The simulation takes the form of a "dialogue game" and includes a script whereby the reader practices talking to someone who may be considering suicide. This exercise can be a useful practice opportunity given that the rates of suicide continue to increase nationally and worldwide. Suicide is a serious public health problem throughout the world. According to the World Health Organization, over 700,000 people die by suicide every year. [https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/suicide]
