    12 is younnnng. Wow. And he's cutting himself already? That's bad and like others have said, I'd try to forward some information to him.
    Actually, I apologize myself. I just realized I actually didn't post his age :p. Sorry

Again...the Kids Help Line is the best first option. Otherwise, find a free public health system support line, a depression help line or website (we have beyondblue: the national depression initiative in Oz) or someone like The Salvation Army.
    Ok I'll see what I can find.

    Eh, I remember back in high school there was a crowd of selective kids who walked around with scars on their arms and wrists... attention seekers.

    This kid probably doesn't have a clear view of life. He needs to talk to someone about it, or just spend time alone to think things CLEARLY through.
    We were all young and stupid once. But yeah..
    It's just a flesh wound.

    If I were you, I would get the police and Sony involved in the situation. They will take the matter very serious. If he is in need of help then that option is the best you can do. If he is joking then he will be in big trouble.

    We were video chatting and I could see him crying. He's been saying stuff about his depression ever since I first met him. It is clearly not a joke.

    It's all good.

    My brother and I had a talk about something like this a couple weeks ago. (I'm 25 by the way and he's 27.) He just randomly asked me one day if I ever thought about killing myself. I was surprised but I understand that type of question since life is tough, it's not easy now and I'm trying to figure out a lot of things right and sometimes I think to myself "Uggh, just drop a jet engine on me while I'm sleeping." (Donnie Darko reference) or "Just swipe me off the f***ing road". I said I've thought about death and wanting "the day to end" but I've never took any action of doing something.

    He told me he actually researched ways of suicide once because he was actually depressed recently. This shocked me and at the same time made me realize how it's silly to think I'm the only one struggling with anything. I at that point never actually *researched* on how to kill myself, yet here my brother who I thought was living a much better life than me was actually reading on how there's a way to take a certain amount of pills that takes 8 hours to kill you. I was just like wow. I'm glad we actually talked about it because I wouldn't want him to do something like that if we can be there for each other.

    Wow!, that's tough. I completely get what your saying. Someday's I've literally thought,"If I were to die today, I wouldn't really mind." On those days I tend the be more wild and less afraid of danger. Which scares me. I also have never really taken any action, but like your brother, I have researched ways to kill yourself, and I've een searched up where the best place to kill yourself would be. I think I used to be depressed, but I guess I'll never know because I didn't see a doctor. I have terrible self-esteem also. It's weird how people go about depression.

    Yeah, I have those days, too. I simply just don't mind if I die...

    Hopefully you can convince him to talk to his folks or someone that can help him then.

    Hey, so. Instead of talking about it, How about someone actually do something?

    Take your pick~
    Contact Options

    Either one would work.

    5150 (Involuntary psychiatric hold) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Results may vary, but, If survival is the only priority then there you go. Either stab them with shit like this, Or just talk to them about it and let them live an agonizing day by day life of deciding to pull the trigger or not.

    Good luck!

    I wouldn't believe everything that people say online. Some people do it just to mess with you and f**k you up. These people are sick. I would just ignore it as there isn't anything you can do if he is serious but I doubt that he is.

    I would be pissed if that were true. Do people really have nothing better to do? That would be nuts if it were.

    I wouldn't say to completely invest your time and energy into making sure this kid gets help, but I wouldn't ignore it. Not because "Oh I just couldn't live with myself if I saw that he was no longer signing back online, the humanity!" but it seems like the right thing to do and I like to help others see the value in themselves. It makes me feel better to know I made someone else feel better about themselves.

    I've had to deal with a suicidal kid on a forum for a while. He was mostly depressed about his luck with women (obsessed with losing his virginity like you wouldn't believe) and eventually after a certain point of time we (a few other online friends) and I decided to leave his depressing posts alone so that he could get the picture. He eventually sought out help and ironically, got a girlfriend about a year later that he's been with for I'd say... 3 years? Not too shabby. Ha, my luck with women was terrible at the time too and I wasn't making posts about hanging myself, pfft.

    The kid may not be an attention seeker, he probably just needs someone to talk to.

    I agree that it is easier to open up online than in real life, but maybe, Log, you're actually helping him out by speaking with him.

    I know he's not your responsibility and some people say to cut him off, but (Heaven forbid) something should happen, eventhough it was never your fault, you may still have it on your conscience.

    Seek professional help, as everyone has said above, but help him out...like I said he may just need someone to talk to. You shouldn't classify him as an "attention seeker"

    not to be insensitive, but those who realy want to kill themselves just do it without warning
    the fact he keeps announcing it means hes scared to do it and most likely not go thru with it (just a probability)
    he honestly needs real friends in real life, but at 12 years old kids are overly dramatic
    if he was older i would have said a girlfriend would change his views but oh well

    but professional help would do him best but its up to him to want it
    its outta your hands
