Does the person already have "a plan" of how they are going to do it? Or are they "having thoughts about it from time to time"? The first is orders of magnitude worse than the second - get help immediately.

The latter is still a signal - it usually means depression if it's been going on for some time. They need all the support, love, and professional help you can give or arrange.

This is just an rough guide. Who can really know what's in a person's mind? The person needs help. There's usually no magic statement that solves it. Competent professional help and loving support are the best weapons.
