What can I do?

My boyfriend tried to commit suicide a few days ago. He is in the hospital, in the behavior Care Unit now. I know he's not a threat to anyone but himself, so that is not my issue. But how do you help someone get better when they are going through this?

  • When someone tries to commit suicide it is really a cry out for Help! I know this might sound dumb but the best think you can do for him right now, if you really care is go to a book store and buy a "Teaching Bible" (New King James Version) or (New international Version) I say teaching because it will explain every verse that he would be able to understand... Just Give it to him God knows his heart more then anyone in this world....Trust God and let him do the rest!...Tell him his life was spared for a reason now it is time to find out why....Even if he does not pick it up right now he will...Because he is crying out for help and love.
    Good Luck,
    I will pray God will touch his heart and show him his real meaning in life.
