What can i do to help my friend. He is 18 years old and gay. He is suiciidal. This is the second time he almost kill himself. I keep talking to him but it doesnt help him. I dont know what he going to and what is he problem. Iam scared of his life.
It sounds like you are a good friend—and if only having a good friend were enough to keep someone from feeling suicidal! I assume you have continued to let your friend know that he is important to you and you care about him and his well-being. Beyond that, there is no one thing that anyone can say to someone who may be feeling suicidal that will necessarily change their feelings.
You can, however, make sure that any responsible adult in your friend’s life is aware of how he is feeling and your concerns for him. Even if your friend asks that you not share this info with others, if suicide is a possibility, keeping him safe becomes the priority.
And, of course, you are certainly encouraged to call our helpline to speak with a listener about your concerns. They are able to take however much time is needed to talk through the situation and help you figure out the best course of action. Please call.
