Suicide is a freaking scary thing ive thought bout it and was so close to trying. My friend said he was gonna committ suicide tomorrow. And ive stopped him and convinced him not to do so. But im worried he is just saying that and he is actually gonna do so. Im quite scared. I said id tell his parents but he said if i did he'd comitt suicide sooner. Any advice?
That's fantastic that you've stopped your friend from taking their life
I'm gonna tag some embers to help out because I'm having a bit of a mind blank today
@litgym @hellofriend @redhead If you guys are comfortable
From what I understand telling someone is usually the best thing to do.

@Chocolatefeather1 Yeah that is a really tough place to be as a friend that's for sure. Know that you have every right to disclose information when it comes to suicide. It's hard as a friend but it's also tough to be alone with this. Especially if your friend cannot keep safe, then definitely I would say talk to their parents. Also, I'm not sure that your friend would be open to outside help but there is of course Kida Help line and Lifeline but again, you have every right to keep help with keeping your friend sfae. I would actually suggest you call for advice on Kids helpline as a third party helping so you're not alone. It's 1800 55 1800..
I did take out suicide method just to keep in line with guideline too! But don't worry, a lot of us forget or don't realise so I can always double check it's all above board...
Let us know how you go
