Hey, I found out today that my brother tried to kill himself last week. He lied and told all of us that the overdose was accidental (first he said it was a drug interaction and then he said he was just being careless). He went to the psychiatrist yesterday (they scheduled an appointment for him after he got out of the hospital last week) and told her he had tried to kill himself. He's in the emergency room now waiting for a bed in the psychiatric ward. What can I do? I feel helpless. If someone else was trying to hurt him, I could beat the shit out of them. How do I protect him from himself? Is he going to try it again? Help.
