Hey there,
You are right that you can't just let your girlfriend die. But you NEED to tell someone. You can't do this alone, you need to help her get professional help. You have to let her know you know and convincer her to reach out to someone. If she still refuses, you have no other option but to tell her parents. Her safety comes first, it doesn't matter if her parents hate you or not. She may be upset at first, but soon realize you were doing it because you care about her. Don't try and do this alone, tell someone. That's the most important thing. Also, let your girlfriend know you are there for you whenever she needs it. PM me anytime.
Take care,

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Hey there,

I know this must be so difficult for you. During this time, it's really important that you're taking care of yourself, as well. Supporting someone with depression is never easy, and can take a lot out of you. As important as this girl is to you, it is also important that you tend to your own needs.

While I understand your fears, it is SO important that you tell someone what you know. Yes, it may be upsetting for you, her, and her family...however, you could very well save her life. Safety is the number one priority here, and if your girlfriend is considering suicide, she needs help immediately.

Take care, and good luck. PM me any time.

"For the first time
in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear that your girlfriend isn't feeling too great right now and it's absolutely wonderful that you're looking out for her and trying to find a way to help - that makes you a very caring person.

Whilst it may be hard, I do think that you should reach out to someone if your girlfriend is suicidal. Perhaps your friend could encourage her to talk to you about how she's feeling or to talk to a responsible adult about her suicidal thoughts. However, it is essential that she does talk to someone about how she is feeling. As I'm sure you already know, being suicidal is very serious. I would recommend that you do try and talk to her about this or tell someone else, whether it is her parents or a different adult (such as a teacher if you're still in school).

Your girlfriend may be initially upset with you for approaching the subject, but it's definitely worth it if it's keeping her safe - she should understand that.

Take care.
