I need to help him.... HELP ASAP!! - June 30th 2009, 04:42 AM

I don't know whether to put this as triggering or if i should post it in family and friends or suicide and depression.
Pretty much a friend of mine has been going through a really hard time, he was kicked out (isn't 16 yet) because of something that happened between him and his father and he's been either sleeping over at his friends houses pretending everything is normal or sleeping in the park.
I've been trying to help him as much as possible (i've posted about this before). He's only confided in me about this.
So today I was talking to him again and he told me he'd jumped off a bridge (he does crazy things so i didn't think much of it at first) but then I asked why he did it.
He said to kill himself.
I was shocked.
I thought he was kidding.
He wasn't. He said he'd even had a better plan as to how to commit suicide but he chickened out.
I'm so scared for him.
He thinks he has no reason to live.
I was trying to convince him that his friends, me included (because I really like him) would be upset and sad and we care about him a lot and would not want him dead!
I really care about my friend.
I need to help him somehow...
I don't know what to do!!!

Also should I tell my boyfriend who's best friends with this friend?

Oh! and also, should I give him my number over facebook (because i might not see him for a while) in case he needs it? What would I say?

Definitely give him your number, just tell him to call if he needs to talk or something like that. Make sure he realizes that you're there for him.

And this is just my opinion, but if I confided in only one friend, and they told someone else, I'd probably be a little angry, however, I did that to my best friend, and he was alright with it in about 30 minutes after finding out. Given that I told the girl he liked since the sixth grade, and she happens to be extremely caring. Either way, it helped my friend. It's really your choice whether you tell your boyfriend or not.
Is there someone he would do just about anything for? If there is, you could possibly tell that person, it worked with my friend.
