You should ask her if she feels safe and if she can stay away from killing herself if she cannot then you should either call the police for a wellness check or urge hurt to go to the nearest hospital
Well I suggest you talk them out of it . Suicide is never an option and it might end the pain and misery to the person that’s dying but it pain doesn’t stop there , but it passes the pain down to your loved ones , family and friends . We’re only humans after all, we’re here for a reason , we can’t always have our ups, we need to face our downs aswell to create balance in life . Please do tell your friend taht it’s k to feel that way, it might feel miserable now , but one fine day , tehyll wakeup and They will be all right , they Jsut need to be patient and dump all their suicide thoughts into a trash.
Try to be with him/her as much as possible. If they keep talking about it and if you can sense something is definitely wrong, try to tell someone about this. It could be their parents,etc. As much as possible, don't leave them alone.
Tell an adult, talk to them show they you care. Most of the time people who attempt or go through often feel like their not wanted that the world is better off without them. While you may believe that it is not your job you have enough on your plate. Sometimes it the little things that can make a difference. Show your friend that they are not alone, you’ll be there for them through the good bad and the ugly. Even if that means phone calls a midnight when the demons are screaming at them, if you want to help them get better. You have to be willing to show them they are not alone to fight the problem head on even if their scared you will be with them every step of the way. Make them understand that you are on their side, let them talk to you try not to be judgmental let them vent to you. And if you feel like they’re gonna do something to end their life call the police get adults involved. Teachers parents police someone
