Suicide Plan

The possibility of suicide is most serious when a person has a plan for suicide.

A plan for suicide includes:

  • Having the means, such as weapons or medicines, available for suicide.
  • Having set a time and place for suicide.
  • Thinking there is no other way to solve a problem or end the pain.
