Someone close to me is going through a really tough time in their life and is considering suicide. Outside of prayer what can I do?

Answer #1

Let me ask you a question, is keeping a promise more important than keeping her alive?

Also, school counselor, school nurse, call child protective services if she’s being abused, talk to a teacher… The list does go on… You cannot fix whatever is going on with her. But you can get her help.

Answer #2

It isnt as simple as telling someone any more. No one at her house seems to really care. Plus that I am sworn to secrecy.

Answer #3

I think you should b there for her/him and tell them that your gonna b there it will help trust me =]

Answer #4

Your profile doesn’t show what country you live in, so I have to assume the U.S. Below is a site appropriate to the U.S. If you live in a different country, let me know and I’ll supply some different sites.

  USA Crisis Lines and Hotlines

        Simply a Rose to brighten your day,         And maybe lessen the cares in your way;         And also, too, to help you to know,         That in knowing you, many others grow!

Answer #5

Let he/she know that you love and care about them if they feel like no one else does, assure them that nothing in life is worth taking your own. Anything they go through can be solved. Stay by their side and let them know you will have a very tough time without them and also I really think he or she should seek professional help because its hard to deal with on your own and how awful would you feel if he or she went through with it and with you being the only person who knew and could have stopped it from happening?? You would be very depressed. Talk to your friend about this. Good luck with everything and I wish you both the best.

Answer #6

Answer #8
