My 18 year old brother cut his wrists the other day. Thank god he was found and he is doing ok but im so worried about him. He is one of the nicest people in the world and this is why it is so upsetting to think he is going through this mental torture alone. He suffers with anxiety and has for years which sometimes affects his sleep but other than that we thought he was generally a happy person. He has plenty of good friends and a good social life. He is a typical teenage boy though and finds it hard to talk about his feelings. He seems to be in good form but this may be a front as he seemed ok before. So my question is, what should we be doing? Should we leave him to talk in his own time or should we be questioning him about what happened? He has an appointment to see a cognitive behavioural therapist, has anyone tried this? Has anyone here who suffers from anxiety tried to commit suicide or do you think there could be another factor too? Please give me advice, im terrified he will do it again and I would just lose my life if anything happened him!
