It sounds like you really care about others. Clearly because you have been there and know how it feels. You can certainly wear a color to show your support but better yet would be to advertise the phone number for a suicide prevention line. These lines are crisis lines that exist to help people in emotional crisis, particularly people who are having thoughts of suicide. Counselors at these lines offer help and support. They care and people hurting need someone who genuinely cares.
Usually those who have suicidal ideations, which basically means ideas of suicidal or homicidal ideations, killing others, are not placed in a "padded room" of the hospital. They're treated respectible and counseled and usually given medication to save their life. But it really depends on the history of their behavior. Lots of those who are thinking about suicide have mental health issues that need to be addressed. They need help. Some have run out of medication and others are brand new to the gig.
Once I met a man who tried to kill himself by running his car into a tree. He had cheated on his wife and thought he'd have a pity party for himself and try and kill himself. In the emergency room, I don't know how, but he slit his wrist with a blunt object. He ended up in the psych department where I interviewed him. I felt that he was just looking for a way not to face up to his fears to his wife who had all the family money, etc. He was a real loser. We discharged him after one day of observation without medication. Sometimes certain experiences also can trigger these feeling of suicide. They come in all shapes. One Flew... is for the chronically mentally challenged.
