Befrienders listen to people who are lonely, despairing or considering suicide. They donít judge them, donít tell them what to do. They listen. That may not sound much - but it can make the difference between life and death.

People who feel suicidal are often so focused on a particular problem or pain that they find it difficult to see a way forward. Talking openly to a befriender, in a safe and confidential environment, can help.

By listening to a suicidal person, a befriender helps them to listen to themselves.
