My friend/family member contacted me to say they felt suicidal but I'm not able to go and check on them. What should I do?
If you are in New Zealand call 111 and ask to speak to Police. Provide the call-taker with full details of yourself and your friend/family member. Include details of how the person has contacted you, for example; cell phone numbers, email address or social network sites. The call-taker will help you assess the level of risk and initiate appropriate action.
If overseas, speak with your local police who will make enquiries through Interpol.
