Lost and not knowing what to do.... - June 24th 2009, 07:33 PM

Alrighty, this is actually about me, its about my boyfriends' friend @_@ and i don;t know him too well...

He just recently went through a BIG breakup with his girlfriend, and now he's gone suicidal and we think he's cutting, and my bf is asking me for help, but I don't know what to say T_T

help, please?

Let him know that you're there if he needs to talk.
Ask him why he is doing this to himself and let him know that even though it hurts right now, the pain will go away and he'll be greatful he is alive. If he doens't listen and still is suicidal then you might want to see if you can get him to check into a hospital so that he can get proffesional help.

good luck (:

Hi Kristin

You have been put into a difficult situation. All you can do is offer your support.
Ask him how he is & tell him that him & life are both worth millions.
I know things are difficult, but explaining that you wont hurt forever is important.

If he is cutting, or is suicidal, then get him to a safe place...hospital maybe?

Anyway.....just take care & do what you think best.

Hi there,

Is it possible you can help him yourself? If you can, then just support him. Try to make sure he doesn't do anything stupid. If you think he's extremely suicidal then get him to a hospital immediately.

If you don't feel your able to help him yourself, then tell your boyfriend to be there for him. Make sure he isn't alone for long periods of time and make sure he offers his full support.

Just remember, if things seem to be getting too much, professional help is never far away. He'll thank you for it later.

Good Luck
Aisling xx

Just kiss me.
