    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.
