Did anyone recently or in the past had someone they cared about to a mental hospital for suicidal thoughts?

      It's been 8 years since my best friend at the time called me talking about how much she wanted everything to stop. When she stopped responding to me for 5 minutes I got a bad gut feeling and called my dad since he had her dad's number and told him something wasn't right. They got to her just in time and that is the best call I ever made. Now she's married and living her best life and I'm so happy that chance wasn't taken away from her prematurely. I feel had I not tried to help that guilt would have weighed on me.

          @Sunshineseeker90 I was having an anxiety attack over it too so it was extra intense. Anyways. Thank you. I've always felt like I couldn't have done enough in that situation so it makes me feel better that other people might think I did good too.

      I honestly would be thankful if someone cared that much for me. For me the worst thing is to feel like no one cares. Even if they do not express it, many people would do anything to know someone is in their corner and willing to help. It was a great thing you did. He will get needed help, and learn ways to cope. If the hospital is a good one, their will be groups where people can share stories and learn from each other. Seeing a Dr. Brings hope. Please don't doubt yourself. The Dr decided to admit, they decided he needed in patient help. Having someone who cares enough to step up for you in a dark time is actually pretty priceless! ❤️ I hope this helps

        @Purplelover8838 My family was worried, and wanted me to get back to "normal". It was stressful on them because they didn't understand, but honestly I've never had anyone actively try to help me. I'd give anything for that kind of suport

      Yes, I had one of my best friends to a sent mental hospital and I'm glad I did, he said he would have taken his life the next week and already had plans

        @cometbites It's very hard to do, to find the courage to talk to someone else and break their trust but it's so much better to have them not trust you than to have them dead

      I have not, but I have been admitted many times. I'm prone to suicidal thoughts. It helps at the time. I'm a work in progress. ❤️ If I can help at all, I can try to answer things that my family has felt.
