What do I do?

My friend has been getting depressed, today she told me about her suicidal thoughts and I freaked out. I hugged her and told her to not even think about that. I try to make her smile and laugh but I feel that's not enough. I only see her at school but I just want to know what to say or do to make her feel appreciated.

Tell SOMEONE A TEACHER, A PRINCIPAL, THE SCHOOl COUNCILOR, if I were you I would tell her PARENTS RIGHT NOW. Or HAVE HER CALL A SUICIDE HELP LINE. SHE NEEDS HELP NOW

Tell her to consider how her friends family etc would feel about this, how she would be missing out on all the good things in life, true love, children, traveling the world maybe, you get the idea, also if you really want to help her, hunt for someone who crushes on her... Once she sees someone likes her shell get an extra boost in her own self esteem, get her parents to treat her better, best wishes, Gnago

Goodluck. Inform me on any progress... I could help.

:) when I hear these types of stories they really do touch me... I used to be one of them... Almost did succeed in my suicidal plans... Till I fell in love... I completely regret all of my thoughts I used to have...

By succeed in my plans I mean actually make a plan

Well i'm glad you didn't succeed so you can give others advice like my friend and I. I hope I can quickly change my friends view of life by your advice :)

Hope it's not too late to inform you lol! My friend has gotten better, we hang out a lot more, go to the movies and she told me she doesn't think about her negative thoughts anymore and when she does she quickly calls me and I try to distract her and it seems to work. She writes a lot in a journal where she expresses her emotional feelings and thoughts. I cannot express in words how much your advice helped my friend and I. It really worked, again thank you and I'll never forget your advice!
