    Anon please as he uses TSR.

    My friend attempted suicide about a week ago, I figure it was quite serious because he was in hospital for a few days and because he has to be revived on the way to hospital and I just feel so messed up in terms of emotions, I like feel sad that he was feeling that bad to try and do something like that but also kinda guilty for not being there enough for him.

    He's a lovely guy, I knew he had problems going on in the background but in college he hides it all and tries to act normal. He's always helped me through bad times and that but I just don't know like what I can do to try and help him .

    Has anyone else experienced this, if so how did you feel? And how did you deal with it?
    And how can I help support him?

    Thanks guys

    Just be there for him. Let him talk or not if he wants to. Think how he supported you. As he's been in hospital he should be getting medical help such as treatment for depression if that's an issue. As you know about his background problems, is there any help he can have in that direction? It's normal for you to feel guilty but you can't watch over someone 24 hours, nor would he want that.

    Really hope things improve for him soon.
