When someone is thinking of suicide, these are the people who talk them out of it

Atlanta( CNN) The caller on the line is agitated.

A crisis counselor named Aaron answers. He listens intently.

“Hey, you feeling better now? ” Aaron questions after a time. “Well, only try to hang out with the staff members there, OK? Can you stay there with them? “

After influencing “the mens” is not a immediate menace to himself or others, Aaron gets his permission to send over two consultants who can address his needs in person.

“We’re gonna come by and check up on you and make sure you stay safe, ” Aaron tells him. “We’ll see you soon, OK? Alright, take care.”

The call ends. Soon, there will be another. And another.

Suicide rates have gone up 25% in the US in the last 20 times. Every state, except Nevada, has experienced an increase.
