    Hi Katie,

    Like total_eclipse said above, please get help for him - you can do so by phoning family members, crisis/emergency services, etc... whichever option is available to you and effective in getting him attended to ASAP.

    Take care,

    Alex

    :agreed:!!! If the danger is immediate, call 911 (or whatever is the emergency number in your area) or take your friend to the emergency room yourself. Otherwise, encourage him to call a crisis line or a therapist (if he has one). His family needs to be contacted as they must know what is happning with him. Good luck.

    I agree with everyone, get him some help... and whatever happens make him feel that he's not alone and that he is loved
    All the best for you and for him...

    consider your options further, when a 'friend' got the 'authorities' involved for me I just wanted to do it more because I was angry at having my liberty taken away and being treated paternalistically...it will set some people off and be counterproductive. some people dont seem to mind it as much.

    please provide more detail about the situation.

    when someone says they are going to kill themselves one does not take that lightly at all one takes it very seriously as stated i did not react i did not call fo rhelp and my bro is now gone if i had called authorities he would still be here i regret not doing what was necessary till this day.

    dont think for one second that im taking this 'lightly'.

    you dont really know if thats true. sometimes, people actually get angry at being forced into a hospital. for some, it makes them MORE likely to kill them self. ultimately i believe it should be peoples choices, and we should try to be more supportive during the time we have left. usually were not and its too late, so we try to get them 'help' that just hurts them more.

    Hi Katie. If you think that he is truly serious about killing himself then call 911 and say that your friend is suicidal and needs immediate help. If you think that it's just a cry for help, then talk to him about why he is feeling like that. Not everyone who says they're suicidal actually is, but if you do nothing and he takes his life, then you will never forgive yourself.
