    What are the requirements to be considered suicidal?
    Is it as early as thinking about ways of suicide, or do you have to be in a position to readily perform suicide? Or is it something else?

    Following on from that, if someone was suicidal or border-lining it, what should be the immediate course of action?

    To be suicidal, you have to be planning your own death, or thinking of ways in which to kill oneself, though the plan doesn't have to be carried out. It is the desire to take your own life, essentially.

    Immediate course of action is to remove them from the situation, if caught, and seek some form of therapy and a course of antidepressants. If they don't seem to work, and the person is still attempting, hospitalisation may be the only route.

    to be honest I have considered it loads of times and still do at some points but what stops me is when I think about is how my family and friends would feel and how selfish I would be to do that

    Wait, why not? Surely all internet browsers have an inbuilt spellcheck these days, or has microsoft still not caught up?!
    I used to but I changed browser cos that one strted messing up and now I don't have my handy little mess un-maker anymore. Microsoft couldn't catch up to a sloth! It's far to slow and buggy to use spell check or not.
    So anyway how'd you guess dyslexia so quick? Am I bad enough I couldn't just be bad at spelling?

    I was hospitalised because I couldn't guarantee my safety to my mental health nurses after a weekend of being suicidal and a near attempt at it. I was classed as an immediate risk.

    I remember I was going through this horrible heart break and I couldn't handle the pain any more. So suicide did cross my mind on numerous occasions.

    But thankfully it never got that grievous to the point that it surpassed only thoughts, and the pain from the heart break eventually subdued.

    But I feel blessed, it's made me mentally stronger to handle such situation if they ever did occur. Whereas before I was slightly more fragile minded.
