I told my parents I'm suicidal - March 30th 2013, 03:50 AM

Well,I'm so proud of myself,that I told them I'm suicidal,& I have a plan set. I Also told them about my depression.That I'm sad everyday day,& I feel empty/worthless.

But they didn't take me seriously,they said I'm just doing it for attention.

Now, I'm on spring break,so i can't tell a someone at school.
Who can I tell?

I am so sorry your parents reacted that way... I'm proud of you for being brave enough to tell them, you're really strong for that. And wanting to reach out and get help is a big step. You're doing well. I suppose you could call a hotline? Or a friend? Have you got any relatives you can speak to?

Dude, that's awesome. I don't know anyone including myself who would be brave enough to do that. Well you always have us at teenhelp but as christabel said can you text/call/email a friend try a special hotline but just give it time your parents will come around eventually.


Every heartbreak we go through makes us the perfect person for our soulmates. Shaping us into what they've always been looking for.

Need to talk, PM me.

To people(like me) who think asking for help annoys people I say:
It would bother me if you DIDN'T ask for help.

I think it has got to really serious point- I have PLAN on how'd I commit suicide.

Quick Question: Will hotline contact the police if I say I'm Suicidal & Have a plan?

I don't think they can contact anyone, and the worst thing that could happen if you told someone else would be them telling your parents and they already know. Don't let the fear of what might happen keep you from calling if you really feel like you need to.

I don't think that they could contact the police - but would it be horrible if they did? That would almost ensure that you get the proper help that you need, if somebody like that were involved. Also, if you're feeling suicidal and have a plan but your parents are refusing to help you, and you can't get into contact with someone at school, you can always go to the hospital and tell them that you are suicidal and feel like you need help.

Also, if feel like you can make it through spring break, talk to your guidance counselor at school, first thing whenever you get back! Also, you might be able to e-mail them if you need help sooner!


all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.
