If someone you dont know on CM sent you a PM saying they "cant go on" anymore. (I think she means she wants to kill herself) What would you do?

Someone in another group sent me a PM like that....Im not sure what to do?

I replied and told her not to hurt herself and some positive thoughts and all....Is that all i should do?

i would also report it to CM.. maybe admins can do something? i also agree with sending the number to a hotline.. there isnt much you can do because you just dont know.

yeah i wasnt expecting her to get like that.....she has been through a whole lot, she sent me a long pm...and im not sure if she really is wanting to kill herself , but thats what she said.... so i guess she reached out to me for a reason....but she hasnt replied since i sent her one back.

 I saw that too. It seems like she got really depressed when not everyone agreed with her. Maybe some people said the stuff she was thinking? And from experience I know that can make a depression worse. I think she said where she was in the post though...maybe it was just the state.

Sometimes if you can get them to commit to contacting you again the next day works for that day then maybe things will look better to them.  But def contact CM.

 I hope she replies back soon. I think her SN is her full name so if she doesn't maybe you can figure out where she is with that. I saw someone else was trying to talk to her too, hopefully that's why she hasn't replied.
