Suicide Prevention: Who can I tell about another person's thoughts of suicide?

Suicide Prevention with Paras Sharma
If someone you know tells you that they’re considering suicide, can you enlist the support of a friend or family member they haven’t confided in yet? What rules of confidentiality apply here? And what if you need to share confidential information to ensure their safety?

This video is part of a series of videos on how, as laypersons, we can play a role in preventing suicide.
