    I suppose you could message the teacher on Facebook? Just try not to bother them too much as you obviously can't force them to do anything. At the end of the day the teacher has done their job and don't have to contact ex-pupils for any reason.

    I would probably just leave it at that, but don't wait for the teacher to reply as they may not even see the message, just help your friend seek professional help from a doctor or local guidance counsellor?
