Hello Everyone!

I am really really really worried about someone else - she is my mums friends friend so i know her very little - shes an alcoholic, has depression and i think she is coming close to being suicidal.

What do i do?

    Hi Jess, sorry to hear about your mum's friend. Have you spoken to your mum about this?

    The best thing you can do is ask your mum, or someone close to your mum's friend, to just listen to how she's feeling. If she finds this difficult, you could gently suggest that she could speak to someone confidentially via a helpline like Samaritans.

    Here's further info on how to help a suicidal friend.

    I really hope all works out for your mum's friend. If you need further help, we're all listening. Hugs *hug*
