I recently advised a line mgr to call the police in a similar situation. Feedback was that it was the best course of action and most straightforward  means of getting assistance to the distressed person.

Someone has contacted my colleague by phone and text giving the impression that they are suicidal, it is known that the individual is "depressed" following multiple bereavements. Now I know what I would do in such circumstances but started to ponder about a policy/action plan for those that may well be contacted as a friend/peer/line manager who may not have any codes of practise for guidance. Does any list member have such a thing?
