When I was suicidal, my brother said to me<br />
Sis, keep that option for another time!!!<br />
Don’t waste it on something which isn't worth it.<br />
Guess I agreed to what he told me
Get your friend the phone number for at least one suicide help-line. Stay with your friend while they call. If necessary, take your friend to an ER for immediate evaluation. PLEASE DO THESE THINGS! The only reason I'm alive to write this is that a friend of mine cared enough to do these things for me. Otherwise I would've checked myself out of this life on September 12, 2009. Thank you for caring about your friend. I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. Please feel free to pm me if you'd like, I'll be there for you both. (((((hugs)))))
Let him know he found another door. Sometime when one can't find a way out another who cares may. Let him know you care and you would help him see a way. Just my stupid take. Good luck.
Urge him to talk with a counselor. They have them on every campus. He needs professional help.
Please rethink and reshape your destiny.<br />
Depression and the wish to die is really a big waste<br />
of your precious life.<br />
I bet with serious rethinking and positive living,<br />
ten years later you will save hundreds of people<br />
who are sad like you today.<br />
Know that all things change: kings become beggars,<br />
and beggars become kings, again and again.
dont you know they depression and suicide are caused by other people
When a person is depressed it is very irritating when someone is asking 'how are you' every 5 minutes and tries to get into your head, or worse, says something cheesy and absolutely unhelpful.<br />
Let your friend know you are there for him. And just like Dave748 said, tell your friend to talk to a counselor.
I wouldnt say anything... my friends know me too well to listen to anything I say on the topic...
