Often, we are extremely cautious about how we would approach or talk to someone we know, or fear, has suicidal thoughts; we worry about saying or doing the wrong thing. But we still really want to help.

The Suicide Prevention Pocketbook gives you the information and confidence you need to help friends, work colleagues and loved ones suffering from suicidal thoughts, or following a suicide attempt. It uses the innovative approach created by charity Suicide Crisis to bring understanding of what suicidal people go through - and shows how best to help.
Founder Joy Hibbins helps you build on the qualities you have already, and teaches you tried-and-tested skills and techniques to help someone in a suicide crisis. The methods included could be used to help anyone that might need help: from a close relative, to another student at university, someone you know from a sports or social group, or a neighbour.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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
