I think, that 7 cups of tea - the best site for people, who need support and belief in their powers.

A good resource would be that they try to be as open as possible so others can try to understand and know what they are trying to deal with. A good resource would be that they also use the suicide helpline whenever needed

The Suicide Chat Room is a place to help yourself by helping others at the same time. You can also go to suicide.org or their hotline 1-800-784-2433 (general). They have more specific hotlines based on your specific problems as well. There are many resources in this world that are meant specifically to help you through your crisis. You are important.

They could pursue a support group, and turn to a psychologist to get the help they need. If they are in the verge of harming themselves they must immediately call 9-1-1 to get immediate help.

There are some good forum resources on this site: http://lostallhope.com/chat; Then there's also Samaritans for UK where you can call them on 0845 790 9090 24*7 whenever. There's also http://www.crisischat.org where you could chat to people online.

I do not think it is a good idea to have a suicide chat room. It sends mixed signals. We tell our members we are not a crisis hotline ... we send them suicide numbers and resources and that is what we do ...

The Trevor Project has a great hotline, and I've received excellent care through the Crisis Text Line (741-741).

All the resources shown on 7cups are fine, but the most important thing is that the more you talk with them, the less likely they will want to do it. They just need someone to listen to them, which is somteimes hard to get by.

I'm not so sure there are any "good" resources for chatrooms to help one deal with suicidal thoughts or behaviors. Such a room, I would think, would need definite responsible moderation by a well-trained individual. And, often, group discussion of suicide might actually push someone to follow through with the act by just keeping the topic on their minds when maybe distraction might be better for a person in that moment. I would suggest contacting a crisis line to speak with a crisis line worker who has been trained in how to communicate with someone at risk for suicide. The following resource may be of help if you know someone in need: http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ or 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Try calling a suicide hotline or talking to a councilor. If in immediate danger call 911. It's good to get help.

http://www.suicide.org/international-suicide-hotlines.htm is the best choice to tell the person who want suicide. 1-800-273-8255 is also the best option but only for US people.

A suicide helpline suitable to that person's country, good listening skills are good initially to gage the problem.

The best thing to do is talk to someone anyone. People should not be afraid to talk about depression because that people who need to talk about it are not having the conversations they need. STOP THE STIGMA AND START TALKING!

If you or someone that you know is thinking about suicide, it's not okay and should be discussed with a professional or with someone who may be able to help, I'd suggest calling the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or using the crisis chatline :http://www.crisischat.org/faq/
