my best friend has chronic depression and has done for a few years. yesterday she told me she had cut herself that morning and that she was suicidal, and told me not to tell anyone, but today i went to her dads house and told him what she had said. He told me not to tell her i'd told him, so that way she will tell me other things and i can tell her parents what thoughts shes having and what she's doing. my mum has told me to tell her i told them, because if she finds out she will be so crushed. it's also too much for me to handle, im 17 and doing my A-levels. if i tell her, i'm worried she wont confide in me about things like this so that i will know if she's about to do something before she ends up killing herself etc. any advice?

I think you did the right thing by telling her dad, if she's suicidal, someone needs to know

You 100% did the right thing. I would be honest with her though. It's too much stress for you and will be devastating for her if she finds out later you've esentially been spying on her and reporting back behind her back. She'll probably be angry but hopefully will understand you had no choice.
