You will not be putting ideas into the person's head.
Ask them if they have developed a plan for suicide.
The presence of a well-developed plan indicates intent that is more serious. If someone you know is considering suicide, an adult is the best person to handle the situation and offer that person help.

Our telephone volunteers are in their teens and early twenties, and we speak with teens and young adults up to age 25 about coming-out issues, relationship concerns, parent issues, school problems, HIV/AIDS anxiety and safer-sex information, and lots more!
We offer free, confidential, one-on-one peer support for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning people. We do not keep transcripts or recordings of the chat conversations we have with you.
Remove anything dangerous from the person's home that might be used in a suicide attempt (i.e., gun, knife, razor blades, sleeping pills). Make no deals to keep secret what a suicidal person has told you.
Express your concern for the person and your hope that the person will not choose suicide but instead will stick it out a little longer.
Remind the person that depressed feelings do change over time.
Point out that when death is chosen, it is final; it cannot be changed. If you cannot develop a plan and a suicide attempt is imminent, seek outside emergency help from a hospital, mental health clinic or call "911".
