We're sorry your son feels so badly right now. We wish we had more help to offer here, but it sounds as if he would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources he could try. We hope he will contact one of them as soon as possible. He deserves to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When he calls this free number, he will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner he makes this call, the better.

2. If he can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called Befrienders International (known in this country as The Samaritans). Send an e-mail to Jo@samaritans.org and he will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website he may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are both in our prayers.
