If I were you (and remember I have attempted it), be honest. Yes tell him how you feel, but remember when you get to the stage of wanting to end it, it doesn't matter how everyone else feels, so don't concentrate on yourself too much. Obviously ask him what he thinks of it/how he feels now. Ask him if he's glad to still be alive and ask why regardless of his answer (why is he glad/why is he not glad).(Original post by PurpleConverse)

Don't dance around the issue, because to me it was annoying when people done that. I know suicide is 'taboo' but thats only because people are generally too thick to know how to deal with it, but be open and honest.
...and how to stay positive
