POMPICOD, MAY BE URGENT - December 21st 2016, 09:28 PM

Hey there, there is a small YouTuber known as PomPi who has recently quit YouTube and made a very suicidal and depressing video: [Edited]
I don't know what to do. Would someone help?

Hi there,

I know how hard it is to see a video of someone who's wanting to harm or kill themselves. I have seen something similar before as well, so I do know how tough it is.

Unfortunately, no one here can do anything about it, and considering you might not know them in person you probably can't do anything about it either. Most of the time you can't call emergency services in different areas. I worked for a call centre and one we needed to call a police officer in a different province, but we were unable to get through as it wasn't in our province.

When you call for local emergencies it's people in your area. All you can really do is comment on the video, you can even try reporting it to see if YouTube can do anything about it.

I hope everything works out!
Brittany

Hi there.

Thank you for coming to us here.

I can only begin to imagine how hard it is for you to be in this situation but I am glad you are reaching out for help on how to deal and manage this situation.

I know it can be incredibly distressing for you to witness something like this and to have that fear about someone being at risk to themselves and even their own life. However, unless you really know them then there is not a lot you can do. Of course if this was a good friend and you knew their details and lived in the same country then you could call the police. I have friends all around England and I have done this. However, without those details it is incredibly hard for anyone to act and I feel confident in saying it's pretty much impossible if they do not live in the same country as you.

And as for us, we can not act on this. We have a lot of people on Teenhelp stating their distress which may include them being a risk to themselves or their life but we as a team (users and staff) are here to help each other through that hard moment and encourage a person to reach out to people around them as well as us so they can receive the appropriate help and support for themselves. We are always here to listen and to give advice from our personal experiences for example, but we are not trained professionals.

Please do know though that we are always here to listen to you. We will try our best to help you through what ever it is and you are NEVER alone. So please, keep talking to us if this is upsetting and/or distressing you.

Hope and wishes,
Jessie
