In this comprehensive guidebook, Joy Hibbins (the founder of an award-winning Suicide Crisis Centre which has attracted international attention) shares her invaluable experience of helping people through suicidal crisis.

Equally popular with the public and professionals, the book provides the reader with strategies and skills to help someone through a period of suicidal crisis.

Whether you have never helped someone in crisis before, or you already have an abundance of experience, this book is relevant for you.

The charity that Joy runs (Suicide Crisis) regularly provides suicide prevention training for the NHS, the British Transport Police and charities.

This book will show you how to:
* Understand the complexity of suicidal feelings and what may lead to a crisis
* Be aware of factors that can increase someone's risk of suicide
* Assess risk and directly ask someone about suicidal thoughts
* Build empathy and a strong connection with the individual in crisis
* Create a safety plan
* Learn strategies and skills to help someone survive (in the short-term and the longer term)
* Learn techniques to support someone who is experiencing intense distress - or conversely someone who is silent and withdrawn
* Create manageable steps to help someone survive
* Know what to say, including how to help someone see their own worth
* Understand why some people experience multiple crises and how to help them

All royalties donated to the charity Suicide Crisis.

'The generosity of Joy's knowledge and wisdom is so apparent and the gentle way in which it is shared ensures that no-one who reads this book will ever need to feel that they don't know what to do when their loved one or friend is needing support for suicidal thoughts. Joy captures answers to all of the questions most people probably don't even know they have, and there is an abundance of learning here that is readily and easily usable for both family, friends, colleagues or professionals working with people experiencing distress. Her respect and compassion for people in suicidal crisis is most telling. A fantastic contribution to international suicide prevention resources' -- Sonja Eriksen, Trauma and Suicide Prevention Specialist, New Zealand
'The Suicide Prevention Pocket Guidebook provides a helpful overview of risk factors and warning signs, and crucially what all of us can do to help someone experiencing suicidal thoughts. It is a welcome addition to the resources that are available to raise awareness of the impact of suicide and how it can be prevented' -- Philippa Lowe, Chair, Rethink Mental Illness
'Joy's work has become my go-to place for sound ideas, wisdom and practical guidance on suicide prevention' -- Professor David Mosse, The Alliance of Suicide Prevention Charities and Leadership Team, Support After Suicide Partnership
'I regularly hear from carers, friends and family that they feel ill-equipped to support their loved ones in their times of need and this book will fill this important gap by offering skills and understanding that can be applied widely' -- Dr Deborah Dover, Deputy Medical Director, Consultant Psychiatrist and Suicide Prevention Lead at Barnet, Enfield and Haringey (London) Mental Health NHS Trust
