    My family knows about my suicidality.
    In fact, my parents thanked me for telling them. It's very hard for them, but my mother says that knowing is more important.

    I don't think you would come across anyone who would tell you to keep your suicidal feelings a secret. Depression is one thing, but suicidal feelings are serious :hug:

    I had post traumatic stress and have joined this site because my brother came to stay with my husband and i 3 wks ago he is suicidal and had been feeling this way for quite sometime,events brought things to a head and he came to me asking for help,i'm finding it stressful and some of my old feelings are back but cannot stand the thoughts that he has been dealing with all thats going on alone for so long i just wish he'd give me permission to tell my mam and my sister but right now i cannot break his trust and i suppose at least he's not totally alone with this,no-one should be alone with those feelings, xx
