i need to know what would happen if i reported my suicidal friend. his family, especialy his mother, is emotionaly abusive. once they know he is suicidal he cannot go back to them because they would make his life hell. this is no joke, i mean true hell. he is already going through enough shit and his emotional state has rapidly deteriorated to the point where he is hearing voices most of the time and hallucinating occasionally. he is miserable and has tried in earnest to kill himself several times and was only prevented by a few mistakes and an accident. i must know what would happen if i reported him. im sorry if this is not the place to ask but i cannot find this information anywhere and i am desperate. i wont put him through having his parents interrogate him. i need to find a way to make sure that he comes out of this the better for not having died. if he would regret living all his life than it isnt worth it.
