taken from the attached article :
People usually don’t want to end their life. They want the pain to stop.
This was the case with my daughter when it was investigated, her word pattern was 'i wish i was dead'

this seems like the crux of the matter in terms of how to 'respond':
Even if you’re not sure, it’s better to help straight away than to be unsure and not act at all. Talk to the person and get professional advice from others.
