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.

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.
