Suicide plan

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

A plan for committing suicide includes:

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