* ''Series/HappyValley'' has two notable instances of this trope:
** The very first scene of the series shows [[TheHero Catherine]] confronting a man threatening to set himself on fire. She ends up using a fire extinguisher on him.
** After [[spoiler:John Wadsworth]] has been exposed as a murderer in the Season 2 finale, he threatens to take his own life by jumping off a bridge. Catherine tries to talk him down, but, lacking proper training, turns out to be pretty bad at it. When [[spoiler:John]] reveals that he ''was'' trained in suicide intervention, [[RefugeInAudacity she asks him what she should say,]] leading to a bizarre, darkly humorous situation in which a cop trying to prevent a suicide is given instructions ''by the man who is about to kill himself.'' [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he jumps anyway]].

* In Chapter Forty-Four of ''Fanfic/ATriangleintheStars'', Steven Universe ends up doing this to [[spoiler: Bill Cipher]], of all people. [[spoiler: He pursues the demon up a cliff in a severe storm, where Bill planned to use himself as a conduit for the lightning to detect and strike, overloading and killing him. Steven bungles the suicide attempt, which frustrates Bill despite the heartwarming words. He threatens to throw himself off the cliff if Bill went through with it, but that only makes matters worse and deepens the depression, which the boy realizes. Finally, after much severe confusion and suffering on Bill's part, Steven succeeds in talking the demon down, complete with CoolDownHug.]] It has to be read to be believed and fully appreciated.

* The Music/{{Nickelback}} song "Lullaby" is all about this, except that the speaker isn't there in person. He's playing the song over the radio, hoping that the suicidal will hear it wherever she is and know that [[YouAreNotAlone she isn't alone.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', a minor character named Brigo will try to talk Link out of jumping off a bridge under the mistaken assumption that Link is trying to kill himself. That Brigo regularly patrols along the bridge and has a little station next to it where he sleeps and gets out of the rain carry the implication that he has done this with lots of people.
