Hello @Holola , thanks for sharing with us here. I am sorry to hear about what you have been going through lately. It must be quite difficult for you to hear your son saying that he wants to suicide. It sounds like things are a bit difficult between yourself and your daughter too at the moment. Would it be helpful for you to have a discussion with your daughter and son about what has been going on lately? Would you find that to be a helpful space for everyone to share their concerns? The situation with your son and his uni sounds really tough too. Do you think that your son would benefit from talking to a counsellor about how he has been feeling? Universities normally offer free student counselling services, so this may be an option for him.
There are also helplines that he can call for support, including Kids Helpline, Headspace, Mensline, and Suicideline (if he wants to discuss his thoughts of suicide). Many of these services also offer webchat with a counsellor if your son would be interested in that. I just wanted to check in with you too about your son saying that he will commit suicide. Do you know if these are just thoughts that your son has or would he take action? If you are ever concerned that your son would take action, it is important that you seek immediate support by calling 000 or visiting the nearest hospital.
This all sounds like a lot for you to go through, have you had a chance to talk with anyone about how you are feeling? Parentline is a service that can support you through these times if you also wanted to talk to a counsellor for support. Here is a link to their website if you are interested. Please feel free to keep us updated here on the forums.
