Hello @Forty-sumfin, thank you for sharing your story with us. I am sorry to hear about what you and your family have been through lately, I can't imagine how hard things must be for you. It sounds like you have a lot of support around you, which is really great. I hope that you have been able to discuss these feelings and the recent events with some of these supports. As your post describes something that has recently happened, I just wanted to check in with you about you and your daughters current safety. How have things been going for you and your daughter tonight? Are you concerned about your daughters safety right now?

Hi, Thanks for your fast response. Her suicide attempt was last night, and it was lucky it was not lethal. I have to watch her. I am following all her movements, though she isn't moving around much. She will sleep in my room, unwillingly. Her room is upstairs, too far away, and I'm afraid she has harmful implements hidden there. So yes we are on alert.

Hello @Forty-sumfin, I am sorry to hear about what happened last night for you. It sounds like things are still quite tough and stressful for you at the moment as you are looking out for your daughter and her safety. You have been so supportive of her needs and it sounds like you are helping to manage your daughters safety. I am wondering if you have had a chance to talk with someone about the recent events and how you have been feeling? If you would feel more comfortable talking with a professional we offer a free one to one parents support service which is available online or over the phone - you can find out more about that here.
