How do you help a friend talk another friend of theirs out of suicide. ?

By telling an adult that you trust the deal. Unless you're trained to handle a suicide threat that's all that you can do. I never really gave it much thought, unfortunately I've had to attend to many funerals-get help, talk to a counselor, teacher, parent, call the suicide hotline, they may get pissed off at you-so what, at least they're around to be mad

Tell him all the things he would miss. The fresh air, internet memes, alcohol, his friends. (or her)

You don't!! At least not on your own, call the suicide Hot Line and ask them for their help!! Please! Don't take chances waiting to see if this is serious, and in case your worried about getting others involved.. The Hot Line is completely confidential.

you may not be able to on your own. If they have expressed the idea you must tell an adult- your mom or her mom or the cops or someone. someone who expresses the suicide option are usually not thinking clearly. they see only negatives, no future, no light at the end of the tunnel.
