    Need help! My 18yr old was just hospitalized for a suicide attempt. I am on my way to her by flight. What do I say? What do I do? I'm so scared.

    Hi Kristenvic,
    I think the best thing you can do for her now is just be there for her and in case she's feeling alone, you can tell her she's not alone and that you're there for her. Ask her if there is anything you can do for her gently. If she doesn't want to talk, it's ok, don't force it and just be there. These may seem like small things but they feel huge to someone who is so vulnerable. Is this her first suicide attempt?
    I hope this is helpful. I will be thinking of her and hoping for the best.
    So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.
