suicide post on masto 

Um, not sure what to do when someone on Mastodon is posting about planning suicide. I don't know anything about them outside of their masto profile, but don't want to do nothing...

Sounds like they've been institutionalized, so maybe that will be of some help? I hope? But it's freaky and sad.

@techit I sent them a message, though I can't know if it will help or what is really needed right now.

@cameron I wish you good luck with this try to send another message and ask hime if he would like to have a nice conversation with you with something like xmpp

@cameron I think it's mostly safe to say 'hey', and just listen if someone wants to chat.

@cameron You don't have to know someone intimately to care about them, and clearly you do care about them or you'd have ignored their post.

I know in my own past even small kindnesses meant the world, because the were proof I was wrong in my thoughts that nobody cared in the slightest about me or anyone.

Some of the most helpful support I got was in web chats with total strangers.

You care & want this person to be okay, tell them so, they should hear it.

@freedcreative
Thank you for that. It's good to hear that little things can help, and I'm glad for your perspective.

I sent a couple of small messages just to say that I care, and try to bring a chill, friendly vibe. For whatever it's worth. But I figure if they didn't want any communication or connection they wouldn't be posting about it online. That's about all I can do, and hope it helps just a little.
