My friend tried to commit suicide??? adult content

I am not supposed to know as I was told by someone else in confidence. He is not returning any of my calls or emails. I am trying not to be too pushy since I am not supposed to know, but I am worried.

What should I do?

  • Keep your mouth shut and be supportive of your friend. Call and talk about things you usually talk about. I'm glad your friend is alright.

  • I agree don't let on that you know. Just be there to talk and support him. When he is ready he will call.

  • Ask in another email if you can get together (for fun, not any other reason) and be there when he is ready to see you.

  • yea you don't want them to fond out you know. this would probably drive them to do it again cause of shame.

  • I agree, don't bring it up. If they want to talk about it they will bring it up to you. If they were hospitalized at the time they are probably getting professional help now.

  • What ever you decide to do, just don't do "Nothing". Ive lost 2 people to suicide and personally speaking, an attempt to help them is better than "finding" them one day leaving you to wonder for the rest of your life if you could have helped them (but were too worried that they'd "find out you knew") . Pull out your local phone book and contact your local Crisis Hotline and tell them whats going on. They WILL offer up some helpful suggestions. Good luck.

  • thats is such a tricky situation,you dont want to seem to pushy because they may know someone toldyou but you dont want to just blow it off either. i would try to just be there for them, no more or less then you used to be before you found out, let him/her know that youve been thinking about them and go from there. but i agree with the pp dont do nothing...ahh i think im talking in circles luck honey
