We can’t be there in person to help and support you in a moment of crisis, but there are other options available to you if you can’t turn to someone you trust.

My best friend, the most important person in this world to me, is in a hospital because he threatened to do something. I don't think he actually did anything, but I wasn't there, so I'm not sure. He's getting released today, and he should be back in school tomorrow.How can I help him in the future?I'm familiar with causes of self harm and such. I don't know exactly what reasons he threatened this. He's only mentioned it one other time, and I talked him down. I just want to be sure in my ability to help him. I need to know what I'm going to do or say before I need to do it.I've thought about doing something before, but never actually done it. If he ends up dying or close to it, then I'm not sure what I'll do. We're both 16 years old, if that information helps.Thanks,
