Is my friend suicidal? What should I do?

My friend has been really sad lately and I'm not sure but I think she might be suicidal or try to hurt herself. Were really close friends and I don't want anything bad to happen to her. I'm really scared. She sent me a text talking about how she wishes she was dead and that she can't deal with everything anymore. I texted her back asking if she was planning on killing herself and she just text back "No. And even if I was I wouldn't tell you cause you would just tell on me." I don't know what to do. I called her and told her I was going to keep checking on her and she said that I didn't have to and she promised me she wouldn't harm herself. What should I do? How can I tell if shes suicidal? Were both 14. I'm freaked out cause I think she's home alone and she's been acting real different and depressed for the past month, shes usually always a really happy person but she's been going through a lot with her family and school. Okay now she texted me back and wrote "please stop worrying about me I'll be fine. I don't feel like talking about anything right now I'm just going to sleep for as long as I can that way nothing else bad can happen to me."

It's possible. You should go to her and tell her that you won't let her leave you yet. Since she is a little depressed she really could use some positive company. :-/

Maybe she is over reacting to somethings. But who knows maybe she has a reason too. Sounds like you are annoying her A little too much which is make her well annoy. And yes I understand you worry and it's not a bad thing to worry. But the best thing to do is talk in person. Wear you can have a more understandable conversation, where you both can actually see each other emotions. And comfort each other. But I do know she appreciates your caring so don't stop that :)

If you are really worried, call 911 and say you fear that your friend may harm themselves. She may be mad at you for doing that, but at least you know she is safe.
