    You need to get him to get help... if he is just talking about it then encourage him/her to seek professional help. If you believe it is imminent then get the help for them even if it means calling emergency services on their behalf.

    Like NY said. If you're in the U.S. and in a decent sized city, a last resort is to call the police and ask for them to send out their mobile outreach team for mental health. Your friend may end up hating you for it, but being hated may be worth saving a life. Try more subtle methods first, but don't be afraid to take the drastic measures. Save the life.
