What Do You So When You See A Post From Someone In Immediate Need?

What Do You So When You See A Post From Someone In Immediate Need?

In the past few days I have seen more than one post from someone who's actively considering suicide. These range from people just wondering if they want to end it all to people actually contemplating methods of suicide. What do we do when we see these posts? I see a way to report posts that violate the terms of service, but what can we do if we see someone who's in immediate need of support, or in an emergency situation?
